The Act prohibits vessels that harvest certain species of marine finfish by means of a gill net, regulated under Code section 27-4-301.1, from landing those fish in Georgia. Conservation rangers or other peace officers of the State will seize and confiscate gill nets. However, an exception lies for licensed fishermen to use gill nets in certain specified circumstances.
