85% or 77% probability doesn't cut it with me given their absolute failure to properly manage over the last couple decades, not to mention their dishonest numbers, models and tricks to give gillnetters more days. Remember "multipliers of zero" ??
Propping up an obsolete fishing industry at the expense of sound fisheries management is irresponsible. -Sg
