I assume this answers your question ?
(C&P'd from Gary on Page ~2)
"The "charter boat crowd"? The charter boat industry (e.g. NACO, FGA) opposed this action and has been actively fighting against it passing for several years.
The advocates are a small group of dual (commercial and recreational) license holders, who with the financial support of the Environmental Defense Fund, seek economic advantage entitling themselves to exclusive participation in both fisheries quotas and seasons.
This separation and effective conversion of recreational fisheries allocations is not authorized by Magnuson - Stevens will be challenged by FRA, CCA and the two mentioned charter boat associations.
We look forward to your financial support in that effort."

Dang Stammy: Who pissed in your cereal? I was just asking which group intended to lead a coalition to put together a legal challenge. I contribute to a number of fisheries organizations, and serve of the Board of Directors of one of them. I've paid my dues and will continue to do so.

Lets see, reefish permit, VMS, VMS service(no rec trip declaration), approved Fed Reef fish wholesale dock to land your catch, (must have fed reef fish WDL and State WDL), hail in/hail out(declare purpose of trip), 3 hour notification of docking(dock five minutes early, get a ticket, spin around in the bay if you must), declare unloading date and time( don't do it without FWC, get a ticket).
If you wish to land your fish at your house, then you must get the fed and state WDL if your counties/homeowners assn. zoning board will allow it.
Don't forget st trip tickets, federal catch, discard, and economic impact logbooks.
