Federal Fisheries Mismanagement Exposed
National Standard 4 – Allocations
Conservation and management measures shall not discriminate between residents of different states. If it becomes necessary to allocate or assign fishing privileges among various United States fishermen, such allocation shall be (a) fair and equitable to all such fishermen; (b) reasonably calculated to promote conservation; and (c) carried out in such manner that no particular individual, corporation, or other entity acquires an excessive share of such privilege.
This graphic shows just how the Gulf Council has ignored the law - obviously not fair and equitable as mandated by the Magnuson.
