FISHRULES App Tells You Whether Fish Are Legal

FISHRULES AppUse the fish identification feature to be sure of the species of the fish you’ve caught, then find out if the fish you’ve caught is legal to keep. That’s the idea behind the mobile app FISHRULES, which uses GPS data to load the correct regulations for where you are fishing.

FISHRULES covers saltwater fishing regulations for federal and state waters in North/South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Texas. It also includes a Fish Log and an easy post-to-Facebook feature. “[T]hey continually update the app to reflect changing regulations,” writes Susan Cocking in the Miami Herald. “Soon, the partners hope to add a fishing license function so that an angler who finds himself at sea with an expired or no license can obtain it on the spot.”
