I have been ranting about a total closure for the past 2 years. We can lower the bag and size limits all we want, but until we discontinue trapping them on the their spawning grounds with fykes, nothing is going to happen. I would happily give up a few seasons if it means that they will get protection from the commercial overharvest that has done them in.

I have also been asking the same question about why fluke, scup and seabass are so heavily regulated (too much so), while winter flounder and whiting have such little protection.
