  1. I really think that we are already using the fish excluders and Ted’s and we do not target the fish or bicatch. So I think we can regulate ourselves, we do not need anymore regulations put on us and no less days will be necessary. The weather already don’t let us work. And why do we government too regulate. It’s already hard enough to make a living anyway. We don’t need another Florida in North Carolina. That is what the Cca wants is gone.
