Sport Fish vs Commercial

The netters get $1.00 a pound vs. wow I didn't realize we spent that much for each fish caught.

There have been some similar studies done in the US. The value on sport caught was not qite that high , but still hundreds of times more than the commercial.

There is another way of looking at the benefits of fishing. It works better than counseling for me and that runs $75 per hour or so. So "Really hon the money and time spent fishing is a bargin."
