I'm learning by listening and reading your data to support your positions.

I'm glad we have a commercial fishery. Lots of fish markets and restaurants would close without it.

I think both recreation and commercial fisheries owe their future to people who obey the laws and respect nature.

Research on bycatch, and on fish populations inform our regulators. (1 snook, 28-32 slot, shorter seasons).

If the bycatch is too much, make the regulations stricter. When recreational anglers commit egregious violations, make the punishments harsher.

Neither makes a difference if enforcement isn't adequate.

8) Recs take far far more the numbers of fish than any of you have a clue of. There are millions of recs that fish the Florida waters, and only a few thousand commercials in the state, some fish, some only crab and lobster. There are so many illegal catches by recs, some maybe in this forum, that take an extra fish, an extra bag limit, an out of season fish, etc. This happens all over the state, everyday. There is a reason "recs" keep getting limit reductions. The state is not stupid. They know what the recs are doing day after day. So don't go blaming everything on the commercial guys. You guys damage the industry far more than you will ever face up to.

The restrictions have hit hardest in Florida, which accounts for more than half of the East Coast's commercial shark fishing permits. Last year, the state's fishing boats landed 45,480 pounds of shark fins, less than half the previous year's catch because of a technical adjustment to quotas.

Here is a great quote from one of the enlightend few commercial guys;

Robert Spaeth, a Madeira Beach shark and grouper fishermen, said the regulations were forcing him to keep some of his boats idle at a time when shark populations are robust.

"The future looks very bleak," he said. "As soon as they start eating people, and the Chamber of Commerce starts screaming, then maybe something will happen. Eat the shark before the shark eats you."

8) Stick to the modern times.
I bet you have even dipped your hands in the illegal catch a time or few.

Oh wait,.. not you. You'd "neverrrrrrrrrrrr" do such a thing.

Some of you are blind eyed to the reality, commercial vs recreational sometimes.
