Do not tamper with net markings!
It is against the law and puts others at risk!
This includes intentionally or unintentionally cutting, moving, or damaging buoys while trying to recover tangled gear.
Steer clear of the nets to avoid tangles.
If you do get tangled, cut your lines and do not disturb the markers. Missing markers put other boaters at risk.
Those witnessing net tampering or unmarked nets should report their observations to the RAP Hotline 1-800-292-7800.
