    Why is it that fisherman in Europe take the initiative to get out and make noise over the injustices heaped upon them. They’ve resorted to civil disobedience in the past when they have been disregarded by their politicians and governments.
    Yet here in the USA they continue to be relentlessly shit upon by those who are in control.
    They roar like lions and fight like lambs. When will enough be enough?
    The end is rapidly approaching. The small business family fishing model is being exterminated. The takeover of your oceans is almost complete.
    You’ve been sold down the river by your elected officials who are pretty much useless empty suits being paid to destroy us by your own tax dollars.
    Time is almost up. Stand up and fight. Take back what is being taken away.
