    Well I personally think its about time they put a limit. Two might be a little low but you certainly dont need more than 4-5 per person and I think the 10 per boat limit is good.

    Preemptive/proactive restrictions makes a lot more sense than waiting for a fishery to be on the brink of collapse before doing something. If only the Mid-Atlantic region followed this model!

    The limits set should keep almost everyone happy and 10 for a boat is plenty - especially considering you guys have multiple other species to target on a daily basis.

    Max of 10 is about perfect. Mahi should be the same.

    Yet another stock with no stock assessment before the government says you can only catch x.

    This came about because anglers says they can't catch them. It's common for the groups who can't catch to complain. Government steps in to do the political correct thing. 

    Stocks shift and conditions change,  There is no commercial fishery for them. It's a slippery slope to manage fish stocks this way. Might as well toss out MSA and regulate by the seat of your pants. This will do little to help the stocks. However it's a great way for the agencies to hand their hat on something.

    Although I agree with the with the sentiment of not imposing regulations before conducting proper science, stock assessments of marine fish are very hard to conduct and have questionable accuracy, especially with pelagic species. And personally I think there should be at least a boat limit for them, 10 being a fairly reasonable number because tuna is a fish best eaten fresh and doesn't freeze well so theres not point in taking more than can be eaten fresh.

    I disagree with you that Tuna doesn't freeze well. About 99.99% of Tuna sold in markets and served in restaurants has been frozen. Even the finest quality Sushi/Sashimi Tuna has been frozen. You need to properly care for it when caught, vacuum pack and flash freeze it for optimum results.

    I vacuum pack it and freeze it all the time.

    Not for sashimi but to grill and for tuna salad

    Bingo. If your tuna isn’t holding up in the freezer your not doing it correctly
