commercial draggers and winter flounder

When are the Marine Fisheries people going to notice the real problem with winter flounder. I see the same 4 small draggers pounding Mount Hope Bay(off of Narraganset Bay) every day. The blame for the shortage of flounder is put on a power generating plant that uses bay water for cooling. While I know the plant isn't blameless, it isn't the total problem. These small draggers smash and kill more fish than they keep, just watch as they cull their catch before pushing the crushed and smashed fish over the side.
