Notes

Summary:
Sally Watt reports from Cortez, in Manatee County on the Florida Gulf Coast. Cortez was once a thrving community with 200 fishermen and five fish houses making a livng off fishing. A statewide ban on the use of gill nets, enacted in 1995, severly cut the ranks of commercial fishermen. Now only six fishermen and one fish house are still in business in Cortez. Thomas "Blue" Fulford, a Cortez resident who was a local leader in the efforts to stop the net ban from being enacted, talks about the old days in Cortez and the hardships the net ban has imposed.
