Worldwide Spearing Regulations Websites

I suggest having a Locked sticky w/ links to state and country DNR rules sites. It sure would help when you get ready to travel to some other state or country. I suggest a list of states and countries and then someone act as a Mod. and we all can PM a link to the state or country and the Mod can verify the site then post it in the locked sticky. BTW I'm not suggesting I be a MOD. I'm an idea man not an implementer.

For example:

United States

Federal Regs...
Sharks, Tuna Swordfish, Billfish: See page 3 of http://www.nmfs.noaa.gov/sfa/hms/br...nce%20Guide.pdf.

Re: Suggestion for DNR Link Sticky

I just wanted to say thanks for putting the effort on this and offer a suggestion that we edit the title to say what it is, like "World Wide Spearing Regs" instead of "Suggestion for DNR sticky"
