If that's the case what else is there? I don't see how those should be the numbers anyway. But shuting it down isn't the answer either?
Captain LayneWhat else there is, are complicated and/or expensive changes to the management procedure. As for shutting it down, if you are facced w/ attaining what is looking to become an impossible goal, and every time you step up your attempts, they have no effect, maybe shutting it down is the only answer- the answer to covering your ass when people ask why you aren't being successful. The answer to others, when the shut down has little effect on biomass. The answer to running into similar problems w/ other species, when the shut-down causes massive political outcry to adopt a system that is more interactive w/ the environment and responsive to managers thoughts. did anyone ever think that they may be putting the fluke up as the sacrificial lamb, to incite a change in the system that will allow effective management, or at least managemnet that has a purpose.
