Just saw this posted on OTW. 


There are some great captains that were affected due to the shutdown so guess it is fair?


However, the science end of it makes me question if it makes sense? I think next year they will just have bigger cuts as I suspect this year there will be some overfishing noticed from to the amount of people recreational fishing due to COVID.

No science involved in this decision other than they set dates based upon an expected amount of take for the segment.

They took some dates away, so they're giving them some new dates.    


From what I have borne witness to, the BSB stocks are very good.
