MAY 5, 2018 - NEWSDAY UPDATE ON BSB: "REACTIONS MIXED - SOME CALL IT A WIN, OTHERS CALL IT SOMETHING ELSE"

Did anyone read the latest article from Newsday fishery beat reporter Mark Harrington in NEWSDAY on the BSB Northern Appeal which came out last evening?

NO?

NEWSDAY (5.4.18) Fisheries commission repeals cuts to NY black sea bass quota Reaction to the repeal was mixed. Some called it a win, while others said it didn’t go far enough to help New York anglers


Let us sum up some of the comments...

Joe Tangel, captain of the King Cod charter boat in Moriches, said the new quota still leaves New York fishermen at a disadvantage to New Jersey, where anglers can keep smaller fish and more of them — up to 15 fish a day in November at 12.5 to 13 inches or larger.



The commission’s vote is “bad for business and it’s a fake increase,”

Tangel said. “It doesn’t help anybody in New York at all.”

U.S. Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-Shirley) called the deal “worse than status quo.”



But Capt. Tony DiLernia, New York’s representative on the Mid-Atlantic Fisheries Management Council, which also manages fisheries,

called the vote a >>>>>>>>>>> “real win.” <<<<<<<<<<<<<<

“The fact that we didn’t get as much as Jersey did — OK, I understand that,” he said. “But we were trying to fight a reduction, and we achieved it.”


Oh boy!

But the best line in the article........

Representatives of the state DEC, which advocated for the reversal,

>>>>>>>> did not return calls seeking comment Thursday. <<<<<<<


This folks reaffirms what I had written earlier about those in the Seatucket DEC Bunker saying:

Mission Accomplished!


We all know how that worked out when it was last stated by a former POTUS - not well!
