News and fish talk from those in the Commercial fishing Industry.
As of this Tuesday morning, there is some speculation by NYS FFL pin hookers on where the quota went and how quickly it was used as BSB fishing so far this spring in NYS Marine District waters, has not been as robust as it should be....in fact, pretty lackluster from what we hear.
There is also an issue that may arise during July went that period quota is used up and the shutdown of the BSB fishery from something in July through August.
Some way to manage a single commercial fishery, and one wonders where is electronic reporting which was supposed to quickly provide landings data to lessen these prolonged closures?
