    People let them claim the BFT were near extinction, that just gave them an excuse to go after YFT as being in trouble.

    Just think with all those smaller YFT being caught they'll claim that mature YFT are in short supply because you don't see them in the counts in good numbers.

    Before long west coast sport fishing boats will be up for sale because not many people will put down hundreds of dollars for just a couple of fish. Long Range boats are at the mercy of Mexico for their livelihoods.

    Stupid ass writers. A little bit of good research will inform the writer/journalist/editor that no such species exist.

    It's much like Transparency in Government. You hear that it exists but yet you've never seen it yourself...

    Well we all know the Albitail tunas must be close to extinct since we havn't caught many here in years...
