  1. This is so stupid, humans sre not even affecting the reproduction of the fish. You cant even imagine what the oceans can do in producing seafood mass. More fish are eatin by other fish each day than humans can catch in a year! For some reason , sportsmen groups are controlling politics and lawmakers. CCA, ect. and they have no business doing that by intimidating restaraunts and owners and politicians with their complaint groups that act as concerned sportsmen. CCA is using sportsmen as usefull idiots . Sportfishing is also commercial fishing because it brings profits to companys and guides and boat sales, and hotels, and charter boats and on and on,right? You phonies are about profit and control. You just want commercial fishermen shut down based on lyes to eliminate competition.
