I see that rockfish management focuses on poundage of catch, so much for recs and so much for commercial fisherman. But the bulk of the commercial catch in Maryland is in January and February. Does catching 10 5-pound fish in September have the same impact on the population as 1 50-pound female full of eggs caught in January or February? I am not a marine biologist but I can’t believe that is good management. Any thoughts by someone who knows something about the rockfish biology?
