To the guys slumming DFG: None of us like limits or closures, but the truth is they do improve our fish stocks. You really don’t think the return of tanker WSB is just a happy coincidence, do you? Of course, the real problem is commercial overfishing, but that’s another conversation entirely...
Take a look at the commercial industry. That's what puts the hurt on the fishery. Regulating commercial fishing is mostly why we have a rebounding WSB population. Obviously along with recreational regs. The real damage was done by commercial just like halibut as well.

Of course, the commercial fishing industry needs to exist to feed the growing number of hungry mouths in the world. Just seems to me that often times the regulation occurs too late after a species has been severely decimated by the commercial take. Then we must deal with the knee-jerk overreaction required to try to fix the annihilation...
