Closing Dry Tortugas to Recreational fishing?

I received notice from RFA that there are plans in the works to close the Dry tortugas to recreational fisherman. Perhaps it's time to send a letter to your congressman in protest. It's bad enough all the stories I've heard of being searched regularly at gunpoint by the Coasties or the Feds in their lost war on drugs. But to close down the area, 45 Square miles I'm told, seems quite extreme. Especially since the fishery appears to be recovering nicely after the gill net ban.

Anyone else have more info on this ill conceived plan?
