Managing recreational fishing in the USA

Recommended Posts

I came across this article on a US website and found it very interesting. US west coast fishing regs

it shows how complex and restricted US recreational fisheries are for only one type of fishing, for what many of us would consider non-target species (rockfish = various types of scorpionfish and cod). 
imagine dropping the tinny in to wet a line when it’s closed from the shore out to the 50fathom line!

I’m not sure what is driving stock reductions but population must be a major influence. Also shows how good we have it over here!
