Maybe the PEW foundation should go to France, Spain, Austrailia, Japan and all the other countries who basically laugh at the U.S. when we try to propose any form of conservation.....The Freakin French kill 18 inch Bluefin with no regard toward the future.
Once again, stop us from catching them and enjoying a resource so the rest of the world can wipe'em out. While you struggle to land 2 and stay within the law, the rest of the world loves it!!!
Another Fishery managment debacle........ BS

What effect would that have on recreational fishing? The guy kept saying the ban on international sale would negatively effect commercial and recreational fisherman in the US. Pretty obvious why it hurts the commercial guys but what would that do to the rest of us?

Not that I agree with it. I think we should just sink the Mediterranean fishing fleet and keep the fish for ourselves, but that's a whole different issue.

This could be a good thing for us. If the commercial guys can't sell the fish internationaly, there should be a whole lot less pressure on the fish. Doesn't look like it will negatively effect the recreational sector.

Some recreational charter arrangements are to sell bluefin tuna with the proceeds being some sort of split between the boat and the charter patrons. The proposed regs would result a loss of revenue on the recreational side. If its a big bluefin, you have to worry the the fish will not be fully consumed by the charter and my pet peeve is good fish going to waste.

I visited the Monterey Bay Aquarium last week and there was an exhibit on the bluefin tuna and its depleted population. Next to the aquarium there is actually a research center that focuses on the BFT. There were cards that listed which fish species whose healthier populations were recommended to be eaten and lists of species that should be avoided (like BFT).

From what I have read on some CA fishing sites, Monteray Aquarium might as well have PETA and PEW on their board of directors

Monterey Bay Aquarium Leadership

Julie Packard, Executive Director and Vice Chairman of the aquarium's Board of Trustees, has directed the organization since it opened in 1984. Her commitment to advancing ocean conservation has been demonstrated through the aquarium and far beyond. She serves on numerous boards including the California Nature Conservancy, the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute, and the David and Lucile Packard Foundation. She was also a member of the Pew Oceans Commission, which in 2003 issued its recommendations for a comprehensive overhaul of national ocean policy. Ms. Packard was 1998 recipient of the Audubon Medal for Conservation, and 2004 recipient of the Ted Danson Ocean Hero Award from Oceana, a leading ocean conservation organization.

Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute

As a private, non-profit research center, MBARI is funded by The David and Lucile Packard Foundation. Marcia K. McNutt serves as the institute’s president and chief executive officer, managing a work force of approximately 220 scientists, engineers, and operations and administrative staff. MBARI scientists propose and execute innovative studies, both experimental and theoretical, in the ocean sciences. Engineers and operations staff, in partnership with the scientists, develop or adapt supporting technology.

There's more, but that's just what a 5 minute cursory search through Pew, MFCN, MBARI, Packard Foundation gives you.

If you sit long enough and go through this stuff you'd have an awesome connect the dots game!!!

Exactly one of OUR problems. PETA and PEW are like octopus and have their hands in everything. We need to model their enrollment, their drive and capacity to get things done.
