Re: 'Evil Defense' Lobby Firm Builds Fishy Client List
Oops, didn't see your question until today. YES the RFA is the ONLY organization defending Recreational Fishing and let's be candid it is a huge industry on its own with a major economic impact.
There are many more people employed in NJ and the entire East coast in the recreational segment compared to commercial, more tax revenue generated for the Feds and state.
Let me be clear though, recreational groups and popular websites that only bitch ad moan about commercial fishing are doing a great disservice to our sport. Commercial fishing has been strictly controlled, even emasculated by state and Federal agencies for years. We've been battling "Comms" while the environmental groups have been plotting all along to take control of our coastal waters.
