Default Uncle Sam wants to increase recreational fishing control !

Catch Share in the works for charters!

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the Environmental Defense Fund have separately announced efforts to regulate the nation's recreational fishing operations under the same type of catch-share system now being used to manage New England's commercial fisheries.
The government effort at transforming the recreational sector into a limited-access, regulated market comes on the heels of a bitterly divisive campaign by Jane Lubchenco, the Obama administration's chief of oceans and atmosphere and a former EDF official, to bring New England's commercial fisheries under catch share management.

What good is NOAA?? And the EDF is a Joke............Total control is all these groups are after, Things like this make me want for a Government collaspe........It's time we take back our Country, Screw these Bird Watcher, Fish Watcher groups............Our Economy is in the TANK, and they push for more of this CRAP....But on the other side of the story, many Rec Groups supported NOAA and EDF when they controled the Commercial Sector,which I am a part of.....How could the guys that supported them when they shut the Commercial fishires out, Be MAD Now??
