Alaska and overfishing are yet but another issue that can affect the viability of our fish stocks, Bones - you are right. That doesn't mean we should ignore all impacts to our wild stocks and give-up because Alaska gets first crack at intercept fisheries. That's what I consider to be a weak and irresponsible reaction/excuse. Each and every impact needs to be addressed if we are to try to manage the fish stocks. Some of which we can change/alter/improve - like making closed containment mandatory - while some other impacts are more difficult to alter.
