I don’t think this will resolve the over harvesting.
I posted my thoughts on the process. I hope each of you voice your concerns.
Here is what I posted today – I’m not sure it will meet their guidelines before it is released by the magazine.
So the agreement is about a million pounds a year of harvesting. Is this One million or 1.6 million? How is this broken down between fishing and harvesting and who is going to monitor this program from over harvest? Who is paying to replenish the lake annually. This is not a transparent agreement. I believe without transparency it will fail again and again.
