My friend and colleague, Captain Sid Preskitt, talks the truth in just what is really going on within our fisheries and the downsizing of our American Fisheries through United Nations protocols. Federal Policies signed in by "Executive Orders" to establish just who is allowed to fish in the commercial industry. We do need a trade policy that protects our fisheries from unfair trade practices, as well as from cheap imports from nations that don't abide by the same environmental standards we demand from our own fisheries. As important, we also need trade negotiators with the level of sophistication and competence to recognize differences in forms of government fisheries assistance -- between those leading to bad practices, such as overfishing, and those designed to help fisheries, such as with stock rebuilding or improving safety at sea. Listen to Captain Sid and make up your own mind, as we that fish, both recreational and commercial need the public's support. "The truth shall set us free." Sit back and listen, talk it about and contact your Representative and tell them you demand real data to support the fishing industry and we here in America want American fish, caught by American fisherman, not shrimp to grouper from Viet Nam!
