Season 1, Ep. 441

In this episode, Michael L. Smith, an associate at Glaser Weil Fink Howard Avchen & Shapiro LLP, discusses his article "Shooting Fish," which will be published in the Kentucky Journal of Equine, Agriculture, & Natural Resources Law. Smith describes the practice of shooting fish, and explains how that practice is regulated by the several states. He provides a taxonomy of fish-shooting regulations and specifically reflects on the unfortunate prohibition on fish-shooting in Kentucky. He describes different methods of fish shooting and how unlawful fish shooting is prosecuted. And he reflects on why writing about shooting fish is a helpful way of thinking about the law.
