Ha! Rogers on that! I heard Trump has already gotten an earful from several user groups (both recreational and commercial) and hopefully he can "drain the swamp" in fisheries management as well.

Re: Gag grouper IFQ for sale

It only works well if you the money to buy or lease IFQ .
or was one of the few that received a large allocation .
Mutt has been on here before and is totally legit , has
taken the time in previous posts over the years to explain
how the system works ;
here it is in nutshell ;
get a gulf reef fish permit , which may or may not have an allocation of
quota for grouper or red snapper ;
buy or lease the species you need to land from other share holders .
harvest , call it in , get a landing number , be at a specified dock to unload to
a specified , permitted dealer . a biologist shows up , measures , weighs your
fish , sounds simple , but generally it's not .
it theory you can buy , sell, lease , quota like a stock or bond .
but in reality , if you starting out , it costs you 20%-25% to land a fish you used to
land for free .
it is an artificially created industry and requires you have a VMS tracking device for have the permit , something else you pay a fee to maintain .
several Council members on the SE Atlantic are pushing this for the east coast'
and could profit massively from this .
it creates a caste system of haves and have nots .
what pissed everyone off was the weighted vote by poundage for permit
owners during it
s inception . one vote should have one permit , didn't happen ,
202 vessels went out of business because of the program in the Gulf .
want to see the results - look up a show called "Big Fish , Texas "
it's not about fish , it's about manipulating quota and the rich fat cat running katies seafood house.
he is what the newspaper calls a fish baron .
unfortunately this is the framework you have to work in if you want to play.
buy quota , if you got the money since I don't anticipate the system ever
changing .
