Doesn't it all come down to fish conservation.
Everyone has a different opinion on what they think is best
And there are always people out there that will agree and disagre with what ever is said.

I think the main difference that gets lost, is the difference between conservation and sustainability. As long as a take is sustainable, then a resource is being well managed. People seem to lose sight of this because of "conservation"

I didnt know there was much of a difference but you have a good point that only take what is sustainable then all is good.

I wonder who takes more commercial boats or the 100's of fisherman yearly.

Most of this goes to the Melbourne
and Sydney markets. Some 30 tonnes is Black Bream. So if your Grandmother
is looking for Black Bream, good luck!


Umm both Melbourne and Sydney are wholesale markets. Every man and his dog with a retail seafood shop buys fish via the market to onsell to people's grandmothers. Having actually been in the Melbourne market I can speak from experience. Not to mention the black bream frames I've thrown in a mincer after someone's grandmother bought the fillets via a retail seafood shop.

It's a petition driven by selfish fuzzy wuzzy feelings. Actually not to dissimilar to the ppb crying

To some people it is popular otherwise there would be no market for it. All the fish they catch gets sold.
Sustainability is like mowing your lawn, If you take some of the top this week, in a short time it is just as long as before. Fish management is about making sure the take amount is less than the replenishment amount. I have been around the lakes boating and fishing since the early 1960s. In that time I have seen the commercials have their right to fish reduced. First they took Sundays off them, then the whole weekend. Then they reduced the numbers to a fraction of the original. Latest is no netting near the river mouths to leave the spawning run alone.
The point is as a rec fisher you can keep 10 bream, commercial total catch is less than rec catch. If there is a sustainability issue then the rec catch should be reduced. Fisheries Scientists say there isn't an issue so why take away the minor player.
There's nothing . . . absolutely nothing . . . half so much worth doing as simply messing around in boats.
