American Red Snapper - Scarce or Underfished?

Are ARS endangered? Commercial anglers can catch them all year; guides 49 days. You and me? Seven. Something wrong here?

We have been following the (mis)management of our fisheries for many years. Along with light bulbs, toilet water, millions of acres of forest land, and our personal freedoms on the web, the feds have had their grimy hands in every aspect of our lives for a very very long time. Recent changes, however, in our political landscape, offer a remarkable - and probably once-in-a-lifetime opportunity - to put a hold on overreach by the feds. In our waters and in our toilets.

Hubbards ARS

One of our favorite fish caught on one of our favorite boats owned and operated by a true Florida legacy family - the Hubbards. Check out Hubbards Marina and trust us when we say you will not experience offshore anywhere anytime like you would on one of their overnight trips.

This article, from UnderCurrentNews (a commercial fishing web site you really should follow) talks about the subject. We are not enemies of the commercial market and they are certainly not an enemy of ours. They could care less if we catch three red snapper a year or thirty three or three hundred if we're crazy enough to go out into deep water 200 times a year.

This is a story about freedom, not fish. The original story was written by Ola Wietecha and there is a host of stories on the Current site from the author. Excellent writer who is really knowledgable about the issues at hand.
