Xort - that article sounds a little shrill and paranoid to me. Is there anyone in the world that really thinks that recreational fishing by 8-year-old boys (shown in the article) is causing the crash of the salmon population?



Quote:
Led by NOAA's Jane Lubchenco, the task force has shown no overt dislike of recreational angling, but its indifference to the economic, social and biological value of the sport has been deafening.

This document makes repeated references to "overfishing," but doesn't once reference recreational angling, its importance, and its benefits, both to participants and the resource.

Additionally, some of these same organizations have revealed their anti-fishing bias by playing fast and loose with "facts," in attempts to ban tackle containing lead in the United States and Canada.

That same tunnel vision, in which recreational angling and commercial fishing are indiscriminately lumped together as harmful to the resource, has persisted with the task force, despite protests by the angling industry.

Maybe I misread it - but the gist of it seemed to be based on that bolded statement above. That is, "nothing has been said about any of this having anything to do with recreational fishing...and that silence is deafening and we need to do something about it." Whaaaa?

Sorry - I just don't see it.

Next....

PS - Maybe this is more suited to the PolitiPit.

"Now we see NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) and the administration planning the future of recreational fishing access in America based on a similar agenda of these same groups and other Big Green anti-use organizations

Quote:
Additionally, Lubchenco and others in the administration have close ties to environmental groups
Having delt with many of these groups for several years in land access issues for OHV orgs, all the quotes above should make everybody who loves to fish very concerned, we are about to loose another american pastime as we now experience it.

What is going on is the game of take on give, they'll press to take it all, but will give a little in return, what you end up with is a heavily regulated activity, if you have the activity at all.

If you don''t think it's possibe...............think again

Wow. I read that whole article, but now my time is redeemed. This place gets more like sailinganarchy every day!

Really though, they know they can't begin to stop recreational fishing, and they aren't going to try.

Wow, deja vu.........this was the same mindset as the several hundred thousand register offroad user in Ca. had that thought the sport was too economically important to be attacked by anti access org, 7yrs later, they were crying " how could this happen and why didn't we know "
