Wrong forum but... This is straight from the "horse's mouth" yesterday

"Hi Joe... the final rule has been cleared by NOAA Fisheries. It is being reviewed by Dept of Commerce lawyers which is final step before going to Office of Federal Register for publication. If the lawyers have edits then I have to fix and resubmit. If they do not, or the edits are minor, then the rule should publish this week sometime. There is a 7-day cooling off period so once published it will be enforceable and effective a week later"

I just checked and it has yet to be published...

What are the filet rules?
If I remember rightly fillets are toes be 4 pieces like how you normally fillet tuna. The changes are the belly section must be kept intact with the anus. Something about bluefin having an oval anus, yellowfin having a circular one. The second change I believe was you are required to keep the collars with the pectoral fins. 1 fish per bag for ID purposes. Also skin must be left on.

So really nothing has changed from this same conversation from weeks or months ago? Things will change but nothing yet.

Why most of us will need more than 2 anyway? The best eating is when is fresh , not after several months being frozen.

I'm good with it, most don't need more than 2 fish anyway! Plus it will help ensure we have fish to catch (and bitch about) in the future:)
