Hi,

Go to: http://www.st.nmfs.gov/st1/market_news/doc31.txt

1 day flounder (blackback) landings, commercial

New bedford: 13,000 lbs
Portland: 0 lbs
Gloucester: 1,200 lbs

Total 14,300 lbs = let's say the average fish is 1 lb, thats a lot of fish. When I hear of partyboats today catching less then 20 flounder per day. It would take 715 Partyboats to catch the same number of fish in a day that the commercials took.

Watch this site. Unlike Rec fishery which is now mostly a few months in the spring. Commercial flounder fishery is year round.
