Why not include any people from the recreational fishing
industry that represents something like $60 billion in business? The total sportfishing catch in the US represents 3% of the total take. Yet many advocates of total bans on fishing
have the ear of the committee.
Highly doubtful they would try to enact a total ban but they have already implemented localized bans and they now have the camels nose under the tent. Incremental picking away at this is what is happening...for 3% of the total take. Why?
