New !  May 21, 2015 -- ATTENTION GILL NET LICENSEES:  the Commission has had reports of the new metal tags being used to mark gill nets this year breaking off.  In some cases, the tags are being zip tied to the PVC flag staff using two of the holes on the tag on the short end of the metal tag the connection is tight, but wave action apparently is flexing the metal plate until the metal tag breaks off at the corners.  Gill net licensees  should review the advisory at the following web link to see what alternatives they have for tag and license decal attachment.  [Gill Net Tag Advisory]
