Just read an article by Al Ristori about a disgraceful dumping of stripers off the N.C. coast. The commercial trawlers going thru their fish to maxinize the 100 fish quota and killing and dumping the overage. These fish are the stock that winter off shore and are the spawners for the coming spring. Until this info get out to the general public it is not going the help the fisherman. Lou

more or less this goes on everywhere

What do you think they do with the overage here? same diffrence.
I dont think its anything we can fix

I think that when they reach there limit they have to throw the extra fish back, and unfortunately they are usually dead.
