federal strategy that could prohibit U.S. citizens from fishing the nation's oceans,

Obama administration will accept no more public input for federal fishery strategy
The Obama administration will accept no more public input for a federal strategy that could prohibit U.S. citizens from fishing the nation's oceans, coastal areas, Great Lakes, and even inland waters.

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.

"what we're seeing coming at us is an attempted dismantling of the science-based fish and wildlife model that has served us so well. There's no basis in science for the agendas of these groups who are trying to push the public out of being able to fish and recreate.

Morlock, a member of the CSF board, added, "There are over one million jobs in America supported coast to coast by recreational fishing. The task force has not included any accountability requirements in their reports for evaluating or mitigating how the new policies they are drafting will impact the fishing industry or related economies.

"Given that the scope of this process appears to include a new set of policies for all coastal and inland waters of the United States, the omission of economic considerations is inexcusable."
This is not the only access issue threatening the public's right to fish, but it definitely is the most serious, according to Chris Horton, national conservation director for BASS.
"With what's being created, the same principles could apply inland as apply to the oceans," he said. "Under the guise of 'marine spatial planning' entire watersheds could be shut down, even 2,000 miles up a river drainage from the ocean.
"Every angler needs to be aware because if it's not happening in your backyard today or tomorrow, it will be eventually.

Re: federal strategy that could prohibit U.S. citizens from fishing the nation's ocea

I read the entire article and find it hard to get all worked up on a bunch of 'maybe's.'

The only 'fact' presented is that the Administration has cut off "public comment." It doesn't even say how long that public comment has been ongoing. Years maybe?

I love to fish but, I also believe that we have to manage our fish resources to ensure their long term viability.

And that goes for both commercial and sport fishing. There have already been too many scientifically documented cases of wild stocks being decimated, because of a lack of adequate regulations are enforcement.

I personally will withhold judgement until such time as the recommendations are made.

Never have so many politicians, screwed so many Americans...just to make one black person lose his job.

I have friends who's lives depend on both commercial and recreational fishing. I doubt they get it passed, but still it sucks
