I read in my most recent issue of Commercial Fisheries News that the NEFMC has suggested that a limited entry plan for the Gulf of Maine charter boat fleet be entertained as part of new groundfish regulations. Does anyone feel like this may be a better idea than having even stricter limits on the size, number, and/or poundage of cod allowed to be taken by customers on a charter vessel? This was only a quick mention, and I do not know what the criteria would be for choosing which vessels will be allowed entry. If anyone knows where to find more information on this subject, please let me know.

Limit the "other" guys and we would see a huge rebound in groundfish stocks.
