Possibly related: I put my boat in the water in April or early May. Every year I see guys in the harbor loading their crab pots with freezer burnt halibut and salmon. That's illegal, but only if you get caught. It's unethical whether you get caught or not. I suspect that people who take home a few cows every year do something similar. Commercial fishermen don't do this, although they do send quite a bit of their catch to Asia to be made into cat food. I have absolutely no idea whether we -- sporties and commerciasl -- are catching too many tuna. But really: If you don't need it, please release it!
