    I am a trained biologist and statistician. Fisheries-independent data relevant to red snapper management would cost almost as much as cancer research if it was the only way to manage the stock. It would need a Department of Defense level budget. So data from commercial and sport fisheries is the best available science. Without it, there will be no science. Only politics. And that has resulted in nothing but fishery failures in the past. 

    It's in everybody's interest to cooperate with the agencies that will make the recommendations that determine the fishery.
