RE:Ammendment 6 Issue # 2
My previous posted reply is addressing Issue # 7 more than # 2. I have'nt listed that topic as yet but will.
I would like to know if we should be asking for a size limit increase for the producer states ? The majority of fish landed in the cheasapeak region are 19"- 20" in length.
A size increase from 18"- 24" down there will reduce the recreational harvest about 75%. I feel that some increase is in order but I'm not sure what the compromise (21 " - 22" ?) should be.
I am uncomfortable with the PID language at the bottom of pg. 7 and top of pg. 8 as it references concerns of the commerce of the recreational fishery. I thought they were charged with the managment of the stock - not the economy.
