History does repeat itself. These fools are doing the exact same thing others did trying to manage Yellowstone natl. Park by eliminating species except here we "OVER PROTECT" a fish species so that type of fish eliminates other species. The GOM is really getting out of balance.


If there is not a "BALANCE" among species then all lose!!

Until recreational fishermen and women in large numbers partake in scientific research with provable data to back up their claims; it's like we are just piss'n in the wind as the saying goes when it comes to explaining to the GoM FMC what their lack of proper management of a species is doing to the rest of the bottom species.

That would be tough to prove. Is it a condition to a specific location? What is the gulf wide population? How do you get an accurate count of fish? What's the mortality rate from fish graders? What's the mortality rate from released fish? Plus a whole bunch of other factors to make it a scientific process that can be consistently repeated and proven to come up with an answer. Speculation and opinion just won't do it. If someone knows the process and answers to these burning questions, I'm sure a job is waiting for you with the Dept of Commerce or NOAA.

Don't fool yourself, this has absolutely nothing to do with scientific actual numbers, it is all smoke and mirrors. This is all to do with the anti fishing groups pouring millions into the pockets of politicians to stop recreational fishing period.

Always remember for it hold's true;

In the beginning of a change, the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot. ~Mark Twain, Notebook, 1935
