Here's a little debate from the last time NY tried to pull this crap: http://www.stripersonline.com/t/632867/please-read-fluke-regulations-in-ny
I thought this summed it up pretty well, from Vinneb:
Absolutely. And for me, this falls squarely within the category of "Be careful what you wish for." A coastwide quota system is great when you're the state creating the overages - only it's not fair to the other states that aren't overfishing their quota on an annual basis. So if you create this precedent, what's to stop other states from increasing their take to claim their piece of the pie? What if stripers were managed this way & all the southern states were catching an inordinate portion of the quota every year, effectively shutting down the fishery for everyone in the Northeast? What kind of outcry do you think there would be at that point? Be very careful what you wish for.
