Default Re: Striped Bass Politics

Whether the YOY class of '12 was an anomaly or not is beside the fact that the striped bass population is in overall decline as it has been since the commercial quotas have been brought up to the "over-harvesting" levels that brought us to the moratorium in the 1st place. Worse, our idiot government is not doing anything about it.
At least back then, most of the poaching that goes on now was legal and counted in the overall catch numbers. Today, they ignore the fact that the pressure on the stock is even harder than when the population crashed. Does that make any sense?
