Cape pond still open but who knows how long
Until this garbage farmed stuff of all sorts and all origins that is flooding the market is called for what it is, I for one want a fleet out there or at least at the ready. Not huge boats though, I want to see the mom and pops out there again. Profitable smaller boats with versatility.
Shame of it all is that that policy/rule makers get to keep there jobs after endless amounts of failed policies and piss poor decisions yet you poor bastards have to bare the burden. Working for NMFS is like being a weatherman.......................fuck up all the time and still keep your job.
The bottom line 1.) fisherman generally follow the rules set by "the smart people" taking almost nothing about what the fisherman have to say about the condition of the fishery or how to make it better. 2.)the fisherman go fishing FOLLOWING those rules set by "the smart people" 3.) the fisherman catch the fish(its their job)4.) "the smart people" blame the fisherman for catching all the fish(wtf)4.) "the smart people" need more money so they come up with a neat way of getting it, giant fines that when paid go directly to "the smart people"5.)"really smart people" come up with new rule that says catch shares is the answer.6.) "smart people" decide that they need a fucking monstrous palace on a hill so the poor fuckers that are left trying to fish can look at it on there steam back to Gloucester.How much more insulting can you get.
My feeling is that if your not going to shit can the suck policy makers than they should at least have there pay cut the same amount the fishermans is. Or even better raise there pay when there decision (sorry "smart people" again)results in a positive outcome for the fisherman. Watch how fast this would solve the fucking problem!
As the Dogfish eat everything from Canada to Georgia.
No worries, all the pcb's will kill the dogs before long anyway right. Forgot the dealer bullshit in my rant. What a fuckin joke!
