Yea, I can't stand that immitation crab meat. Any sushi place I catch using that stuff in their rolls makes my sh*t list. And I only eat fresh halibut or cod in my fish-n-chips. None of that frozen fish-stick cr@p.

It is too big a money industry for any ship to be "shut" down.....there are other more effective ways to be found than this.
Now let's see if we can find a way to insure things are done honestly rather than the Alaska way. I've got the necessary degree and if Starlite and Moose would go with me on the offending trawler we would be able to assure you the count would be complete and accurate. And since Star and Moose would carry heavy artillery to protect us from the bears who would also want to count Salmon I doubt if any of the moneyed fingers would look at us with other than our deserved measure of respect. Presto an honest way to do things. Lets see now I weigh in at about 250+ and Star appears to be close and ... well who argues with 600 pounds of agitated unhappy Salmon counters?

Maybe if we didn't let the Japs in, after they destroyed their own fishing, things might be a little different.

I live on the shores of Lake Michigan, and unless something isn't done fairly soon about Asian Carp, they could soon be flooding into the Great Lakes and destroy a multi-billion dollar fishing industry.
