    Excellent point! I brought this up in a different thread. Cell phones have changed that subsistence fishery unlike any other form of technology.

    I'm more curious how many were killed as "by-catch" by commercial fishermen in more recent history........

    When the fish are gone completly we will all wonder what we should have done.
    While Trawler bycatch is a serious issue, when there is a closure I don't care who you are the resource should come first.
    And personally I don't care if you have been harvesting them for 1 year or 10,000 years when the fish are suffering we all need to do our part to keep them alive or bear our share of the blame for their demise.
    Out of curiosity what have you done in regards to the bycatch issue? Written any letters to your congressmen/women? Strated a campaign against them?
    Just curious as you should do something if you are that concerned yet I doubt you have (other than complain here).

    And the by-catch continues.
