Sounds about right. Hard decisions have to be made. Commercials have also had their catch limits slashed. Recreational divers/potters primarily target shallow water fish which is compounding the urchin problem on the east coast as crays are a major predator. I'd like to see a one or two year moratorium on the east coast, maybe limit it by how deep you can set your pots or something similar.
