Sad that they can't get it right.

They can't count reef fish because the way they count fish is by trawling and you can't do that around reefs because it's hard on the nets.
Did I understand that correctly?
What I can't get is why, with all the artificial structure in the Gulf, they didn't do what Alabama is doing did years and years ago. I understand if you sample just reefs, the data is biased. But come on people, you don't need cameras to check out reefs or rigs. It's called hook and line....
