If you relied on bonefish for food, you would soon starve to death.

When folks have finite financial resources but live around water, they are going to rely on the sea for food as have their ancestors. No species protective legislation will deter a fisherman from providing sea food to his family whether bonefish, sea turtles, conch over-harvesting or whatever. Near remote settlements in the Bahamas, conch shell piles are huge and bonefish can be scarce.
