Good Evening Everyone. I'm a teacher and this year I would like to get my students more involved in letting their voice be heard and looking at the whole picture. All my students practice subsistence fishing and obviously we know where their loyalty lies. However, Where can I go to find resources that we (students and I) could understand. What sort or how much of an impact does each style of fishing have on the numbers? I know there is commercial fishing, sport, and subsistence fishing. Is trolling included in the commercial fishing category? How can all three components work together for harmony?

What I want to do is look at all aspects of fishing and then write our congressmen and representatives to let our voice be heard. However I want them to develop a stance they can back up with data.
