Default FWC Requesting Catch Info From HMS Permit Holders

Have any other HMSpermit holders been contacted by FWC requesting info onyour catches. I'vereceived a couple of phone messages fromthem requestinginformation. In the past I have happily provided info on my reef fish catches, but I'm a little hesitant to with this request considering the Snapper fiasco. Iknow that FWCisn't driving the train on that one andI firmly believe in our stewardship responsibilities, but refuse to provide ammo to the enemy.

Am I off the mark here?

I routinely have anywhere from 3 to 5 saltwater license for states along the Gulf Coast and have routinely been contacted by just about every state EXCEPT Florida. There was a few articles I saw a week or two ago about FWC stepping up it's attempt to obtain more accurate data on the FL fishery.........imagine that......accurate data.......sounds like a good thing to me.

"accurate data.......sounds like a good thing to me."

As well as that may be I'd like to see a copy (if there is one written)of that questionnaire and to what extent (detail) the questions go into.

How detailed the questions are, is to how accurate the survey will be, and to how (accurate) that data is to be used.

They have called me and I took the survey.Most of the questions they ask areabout migratory species (since it is an HMS survey)you have caught but they do take other info such as where you dock, where you fish, what your fishing for and what you caught, how long you fished for, that kind of stuff but the questions always get back to the migratory species such as Sharks and Marlin etc.

i had this exact call yesterday but it was from NOAA not FWC and the call was the result of me buying a HMS permit.

It might be designed to kill two birds with one stone. Fishery management and enforcement.Since it was mentioned that they were asking port of departure it might be designed to determine where enforcement efforts would be most effective.

Edit: In case you're wondering my angle,I think enforcement of HMS permits is a good thing.
