Default Saltwater overfishing does more harm than pollution!

Fly fishing along the Jersey surf is declining every year! I do it all the time, and it makes me sick to my stomach.

The commercial netters, along with the "climate change" - pH rise, plastic trash rise, and CO2 rise in the water, will make fly fishing extinct very soon!

Drastic actions have to be taken now:

I disagree!

Overfishing can be stopped overnight by responsible government, but only if a few responsible people take back their governments, and populate them with honest representatives.

Polution by petrochemicals, fertilizers, poisons, GMO's, and the like just go on killing for a long time even after they are stopped.

We can't control the sun's radiation hitting the earth except possibly through Chemtrails, but at the expense of every living thing in the northern hemisphere.

And there is no need to continue anyway, since the sun's radiation is continuing to weaken and expected to do so for at least two more decades by astronomers even at our own National Solar Observatory. (Professor Emeritus Dr. William Livingston and Dr. Matthew Penn - both solar astronomers)

We are now in the weakest solar activity cycle in 100 years and still dropping. Many internationally celebrated solar physicists, astronomers and staticians (including the two above) are talking about another possible "Maunder Minimum" -which coincided with the mini ice age in the 1600's.

This cooling spell will drive more co2 into the water, but it will also drive more o2 into the water - though at a slightly lower rate of increase. Fish will be getting more oxygen, not less, as the water cools - just as they do every winter.

when voters quit putting the same representitives into office year after year things might change. The incumbants are doing a terrible job and have an 8% approval but yet they continue to vote them back in. How STUPID is that? Quit whining till you do something about it.

Only a few years ago? Island Beach State Park on the NJ surf.

Every winter the stripers would migrate south, close to shore. The last few years ...... Nada!

Default Re: Saltwater overfishing does more harm than pollution!

Obviously something needs to be done, the thing that drives me crazy is you have all these captains who limit out every time when they go out. They need to realize that they cant keep taking. ( I understand they have to make money but a couple fish is okay rather the limiting out) These captains will be the ones in 5-10 years who not have jobs anymore because their is little fish left( they will be the ones complaining that they cant make a living). Another point to be made at least for strippers is you need to have a slot limit. I find it as a lack of education about fishing that people catch huge strippers and they think they must keep them because they are so big( take a picture let it go) Keep a smaller legal one. The large ones are the big females (we need them)
