Default Re: Striped Bass Commercial harvest increase?

From what I've read they are claiming that commercial fishermen are still harvesting the same amount of Stripers a year since the moritorium was first lifted back in 1990, But the harvest by Recs has increased 400% in that time. The Coms want a bigger piece of the pie. In other words the number of fish harvested will stay the same but Coms will harvest more and Recs will have to harvest less
