and look at where we are today !
It seams like we are on a broken record with the Bass biomass, and trust me it's broken.
It doesn't stop there; you name the species and it's the same, for all fish stock. Fluke, Winter Flounder, Whiting, Weakfish, Tog, you name it. They are all in a downward spiral in my opinion just to name a few.
@HopHead can tell you how pleased he is that he can not even take one tuna. Sorry Charlie...
Name one fishery in the north east that has rebounded to years past fish stock biomass. Don't hang your hat on the Spiney Dog fish. How's your Winter Flounder fishery. At one time, it was a world class fishery. Out of state bus trip from far and wide are a thing of the past now, eah.
Maybe your heart is in the right place but, New England Fishery Management Council (NEFMC), MAFMC, ASMFC, NOAA, and the Army Corp of Engineers are not getting it done.
Take a look at the Beach replenishment act here in NJ. I said it once before and have to do it once again. It's all about the all mighty dollar
If anyone else killed off an entire eco system of marine life intentionally, they would be throw in jail.
Nothing against you Mike, but with your background and if nothing changed in the past, you really think you can make a difference now.
I highly dought it
