What a scam, the numbers are crap now and they'll be crap in two years.capt.eugene (10/25/2009)Like I said a year ago on here we want to freeze the numbers now.Matt Mcleod (10/25/2009)Ok, let me try to get my mind around this. You want to be separate from the rec sector so that you can collect better data, because we both agree that the data is COMPLETELY BOGUS. All you ask is that you get to take 58% of the rec fisherman's fish with you, because that's what the data says you deserve? So the data is only wrong if it doesn't benefit you, but when it does then all the sudden it's not so bad?
58% of the rec catch? So once you break it down to IFQ's there will be what, maybe 10-12 guys who control the majority of that 58%. 10-12 guys who control the majority of the RECREATIONAL FISHERMAN'S red snapper catch?
If that doesn't get you up off the couch to sing the national anthem nothing will!!
Collect Data for two years and then Hash it out if you would have payed attention you mite remember those things.
How do you figure 10 or 12 people will control it.
