Cause regulations.

Anyone know what is the meaning of "cause regulations"?
I found these words from the Flipper Movie.
Here is the full sentence, "You know, fishing being the way it's been. We don't need a dolphin to tear holes in the net, steal bait, or cause regulations."

Thank you.

    Problems between dolphins and fisherman may cause (be the reason for) local governments to issue new regulations (rules, restrictions) that fishermen will have to obey. And there are already way too many of those regulations.
