I lived in Texas and Florida most my life.
FISHING is a passion with me.
I have a hard time in Maine, here's some fish.
Cod fish are huge and way out in the
Ocean, very dangerous
The 2011 assessment of Gulf of Maine cod indicated the stock was
still seriously over fished, not recovering as fast as expected,
and would not be able to meet the required 2014 rebuilding deadline.
Given the potential ramifications to the fishing industry of the large
catch reductions required to end over fishing, NOAA and the
New England Fishery Management Council took
unprecedented action to respond to the new scientific information.
The agencies formed a joint working group and held meetings with fishermen,
scientists, and members of the environmental community
to gather broad input on possible management options.
Together, they identified a way forward that will gradually reduce fishing
pressure on the stock in the 2012 fishing year,
so fishermen can better plan for necessary catch reductions in 2013
that will end over fishing on this important stock.
Now I have to go Catch a red Fish, Hummm!
Now this one is for me.
Like to catch a Haddock, but not in these waters. I was never afraid of the sea
in Florida, but the Maine Coast is too dangerous for me.
Happy fishing this Summer..
