Default Re: Final Sea Bass and Blackfish Proposals

I wonder why here in NJ, they don't acquire these permits, a lot of NS Long Island Boats, have been catching them up pretty good.

Not sure if this is available here in NJ and if it is, I think boat owners might be looking at this option as a slippery slope here in NJ. If captain "x" buys one then captain "y" is forced to buy one and now they are both paying more to fish.

Seems to me this pay to play mentality is just a way to get everyone to pay more for a fishery that is a natural resource and should be free.

I'm a novice on these matters so I might be all wet here.
