Wonder how many pounds of snapper this will cost us? Last year the state of Alabama said only 35% of fishermen reported their catch so they shorted us 65% of our TAC.

Until we get a workable mandatory checking method in place, the Gulf Counsel will still be using the SWAG method (scientific wild a$$ guess) of accessing catch numbers. Don't know why there isn't something already in place.

The Gulf Council doesn't know or care how many of anything are in the Gulf or they wouldn't institute their absolutely idiotic regulations in the face of reality. It's all about controlling YOU, not the fish!

The Gulf council no longer controls ARS. The individual states are in charge; that's why you see different seasons in each state including the federal waters off those states. While the council sets the overall quotas for the gulf the states are required to oversee the management.


Not that you guys aren't right about how the council operates on everything else.
