This short film was on “fisherman’s voice” on facebook. If you have seen it, it is worth watching again. If not it is a must watch and please pass it on. The film is from 2005. It would have been great if we could have seen it back then because the whole effort to move for-hire boats into a separate sector and create catch shares for us would most likely be a thing of the past. The story in this film is compelling and shows how catch shares make a select few wealth while putting many out business and turning the rest into share croppers.



The Gulf Council will be discussing amendment 40, the sector separation issue once tabled due to over whelming opposition, at the Feb meeting beginning on 2-3-14. If you are considering supporting or do support the amendment this film should change your mind. The NMFS and environmental defense fund are working together to take us off the water, consolidate the for-hire fleet, and privatize the resource that we currently have access to.

Oh yeah, Catch Shares. It was pitched to better manage fisheries, promote fisherman safety, and in some cases improve profitability.

They could have managed fisheries by other means to achieve sustainability. Catch Shares was nothing but a heist and depending on who writes the history it will go down as nothing more than a heist.

I just want to know how much the fisheries managers have been paid or how many Shares they have been promised to go ahead and drive Catch Shares home because their wetre several that all of a sudden got behind Catch Shares (maybe their job was threatened?).
