I Cannot understand why people do not use exluders. It is not a new technology, it's cheap(in this case free), and well researched and proven not to effect crab yeilds in pots. :x

DBTs are one of my favorite turtlespecies what a tragedy. Based on the pic it looks like it was a ghost trap, at least it washed ashore and will not go on killing. But what an fing waste.
