Quote from: Swami805 on August 22, 2023, 04:14:26 AMThere was a huge take of near shore rockfish for the live fish market along the entire ca coast 20+ years ago. Anyone with a dingy, a trash can with water in it and a $50 license jumped in and it was on. Fish that brought in 80 a pound dead were now going for $6-$8 a pound live. It was unrestricted for quite a while and got pounded really hard. Later they put in monthly quotas but the damage had been done and some never really recovered, especially the slower growing fish. They should have stepped in sooner but here we are now. Hope it works and we see some of these species recover
