    The Moderators have been busy over the last several few weeks contacting members about posting images/text that they do not own or did not write themselves.

    Here at FishLore, we take this very seriously.
    Please respect copyright laws and the owners of such work by simply not doing it.
    Usually a link to the information/ image will suffice.
    Remember just because it's on the internet does not mean it's free to use.

    Please take a moment to read to read the following stickies:

    Think this needs another bump as we’ve had to remove quite a bit of copyrighted content recently.
