If i brought a thousand pounds of fish home and texted my friends/family come get it, it would be gone in two days no problem, throw the neighbors in and a day maybe....It's been obvious for some time there are fisherman who post on BD who sell a lot of their catch. There's no way even an extended family can eat a small portion of the volume of fish these people catch, and it's unlikely even an outgoing person would have enough friends to give it all away. Do the math. There are fish totals that are over a thousand pounds, and I'm not talking long range fisherman who go on several trips a year. I'm talking local fishing by people who post consistently high numbers. It adds up to one conclusion: They are selling on the black market. Some of these fishermen admit online to not having any obvious job or source of income, unless they're being modest. Maybe, *hopefully* I'm being cynical, and these are honest fishermen and they are generous and donate to shelters, but that's unlikely.
