In a nutshell, I think we will lose some freedoms, but enjoy healthier fisheries. Over-fishing laws will be strictly enforced; therefore it is doubly important to make sure that the recreational community fights for a share of the allotment on species such as fluke, snappers and groupers that reflects our enormous economic impact. My personal opinion is that some types of commercial fishing should go the way of market hunting, at least in those stressed fisheries where the public demand and benefit from recreational fishing greatly exceeds the benefits of commercial fishing. Striped bass, snappers and groupers are prime examples of species in need gamefish status. Just look at the benefits we reaped by making red drum a gamefish. But systems such as Individual Fishing Quotas and Dedicated Access Privileges, however well meaning and effective in some cases, may permanently vest commercial interests in fisheries such as the snapper/grouper complex that they should be permanently locked out of.
