    FWC would be crazy to allow fishing of a critically endangered fish. Regardless of some people's opinion on the status - as long as the fish are officially listed as critically endangered (or just endangered) it would be foolish to allow fishing. Could you imagine the headlines? "Florida set to allow harvest of critically endangered species." I'm glad I won't be reading that bit of embarrassment in the paper this year.

    Some pressure is building to re-open the giant sea bass (Stereolepis gigas) fishery here in SoCal. I hope it meets with the same result. Kudos to the FWC on the goliath grouper decision.
