    Default Crab manager fired

    I saw that Governor Hogan removed the DNR crab manager after he had a meeting with waterman. Apparently they want to harvest crabs less than 5" and she had been resistant. Unclear if he approves of the smaller size or just removed her for other reasons. I certainly hope that this doesn't influence how the fisheries managers establish size limits and quotas for rockfish and other species for both commercial and recreational fisherman.

    I have not read anything about President Trump, for it is President, gutting the EPA. I have read where if they are going to issue a new regulation then they need get rid of 2 old outdated and overlapping regulations. That was across the board for ALL departments. What's wrong with that??

    Hopefully we can get back on topic, which is the potential influence of waterman on fisheries decisions. The forum has been very good about being agnostic on politics and we should keep it that way. The only left right discussions should be reel handle preference

    Wasn't Hogan in place well before Trump became president?
    Don't get the connection.
    I agree that I hope the fishery regs don't change for the worse.

    Sent you a pm about the coal mining rule repeal. The EPA issue is a separate matter, and I agree with the others on this forum, politics and snaggedline should remain parallel, on the forum at least.
