Re: The Collapse of the Gulf of Mexico Grouper Fishery

Those are good questions but the question everyone should be asking is why have we allowed the Gulf Council and NMFS to mismanage our fishery so badly that there has to be closed recreational seasons and reductions in commercial quotas?

I've always found it hard to stay out of the commercial vs. recreational trap. It should be fishermen (fisherpersons?) vs. the managers of the fisheries and how we should demand accountability for their mismanagement.

This video is the last time I have shot a killer stringer of gags. Between me and the other diver we had 33 gags. We back dove it and got 10 more an hour later. (because it took and hour to gut and pack all those fish!) I don't know of anyone who has a video anything close to that since 2015.

33 gags

These fish were named grouper because they are suppose to "group" together. We should rename them to loners.
