Default 2017 Fluke - Next Steps

If the 2017 Fluke proposal still has you pissed off you still have a chance to help reject the proposal.
The Galloway meeting was standing room only and many great opinions were shared, however it was as small room and we need more comments. Its important, they read them and they are included in the decision making process.

So if you can spare 5 minutes I strongly encourage you to submit written comments to the ASMFC about the proposal:
krootes‐murdy@asmfc.org*
(Subject:*Draft*Addendum*XXVIII)*

Thanks

I had sent the portions from my post OPTION 6 .

heard back within a day that comment were recieved and would be added for consideration


Option 6

A (5) fish bag limit composed of
(3) fish 16 to 19"
(2) fish over 19"
as their historical data shows best reqruitment was ALWAYS when we had a smaller length limit than 18" .
It showed when the catch was spread where it possibly added males to the daily creel as well as taking smaller less egg quanity filled females the fishery reruitment was always in an upward path.
It is only since imposed limits that take 90% females and it also targets the fish carrying the most eggs to be the total daily creel. that recruitment showed a downward trend
data showes the fishery had only failed under the management plan of raising the limit to allow less target fish .

It would spread the harvest over 3 top 4 years of age class fish/
Lower our poundage due to taking fish that weigh less as part of the creel etc.
and allow many people to much better enjoy the resource.while meeting their reduction requirements.
Lower throwback mortality number status quo hasn't worked 18 inches is the wrong number to have as a starting point

I agree option 6 makes the most sense. But I also say that since the feds mismanaged the fishery so badly the state of NJ should. (1) Reject all the feds options (as has been done). And (2) Tell the feds we will set our own limits and only enforce our limits...Charlie
