Default Re: Trouble for the 2014 Fluke season

JCAA has a committee that is reviewing the addendum and will formulate an official position on it. Once that is done we will be glad to share it on line.
We are also seeking ways to show that the MRIP figures are wrong as we strongly believe that we did not catch nearly as many fluke as the survey indicates. For example, there was about a 40% decrease in the number of individuals who signed up for our state's saltwater registry this year. We suspect that boat registrations were down signifcantly too this year and intend to obtain the exact numbers. Further we have found some flaws in the way the survey was conducted.
