Ironically it seems to me the ones who are doing that are the federal permit holders when they let King Roy dictate to them what they can and can't legally do in "State" waters. :shrug Did you sign all your rights over to Roy for the permit privilege or just those?:huh
The states or no one else even remotely mentioned taking control away from the councils until the council's decided they were somehow entitled to control what happens in federal AND state waters.
Just more big ego power grabs partially fueled by the " Patriot Act" which has blurred the lines of separation of powers between the feds and the states at many levels. Hell, every FFWCC officer is walking around cross deputized as a federal law enforcement officer now.:rotflmao
But if the councils keep picking fights with the states they will eventually lose, that I guarantee you. Having all the shares won't do you any good if there are no ports for you to legally commercially land the fish at. Just ask Gene R.'s boys how that worked out for them with the redfish back in the day.:grin

I'll provide specifics when you provide specifics on what would happen when/if an IFQ system was implemented in the Gulf recreational fisheries.

I still can't understand how you and others constantly ask people what an IFQ will look like before the Council designs it.
