To date I have seen no CONCLUSIVE PROOF of the netters breaking the law. There has been lots of hearsay, lots of heavy breathing, fire and damnation stuff....but no proof.
As a result I vote no.
If you can prove that the law has been contravened, then I would remove this persons right to fish - I would still not ban netting completely.
A ban is an easy way out and is the thin end of the wedge.
Look at coppers.....
My worry is that once we get onto a roll of banning, there is little knowledge or desire from our Ministerial component to investigate other conservation alternatives. It will therefore not be long before any infringement is met with a total ban.
