Be careful What you wish for … especially in fisheries management

I attended the NCMFC meeting on 2/23-2/25.  The first evening was public comment.  The majority of the speakers were CCA members, guides and individuals, who basically repeated the same script that was obviously authored by someone else and read over and over.,, In all my years as a recreational angler living in eastern NC.  I have NEVER, and I mean NEVER, seen the hate and disgust shown by a select group of anglers pushing the rhetoric of the CCA and other groups against commercial fishing.  I do not believe this is the average angler, but a group of self-centered, agenda driven, individuals, who stand to gain politically and monetarily from the closing of commercial fishing.   I get asked all the time how can I champion a sector that has gill nets and trawls?  I don’t think of it that way. by Easton Edwards, >click to read< 09:08

    I can only speak for myself but the gentleman is spot-on some people think they’re entitled to everything and there will come a day when the consumer jumps up and says where’s my fresh caught North Carolina seafood and we traded it for the c c a then you will see hate and discontent
