• CTDEEP Increases Pounds of Bluefish Commercial Boats Can Take

“Effective 0001 hours, Tuesday October 1, 2013 the possession limit for the commercial harvest of bluefish is increased to 1,000 pounds.

”As of September 21, 2013, 14% of the annual quota has been harvested. By regulation, if less than 80% of the annual bluefish quota has been landed by October 1, the possession limit shall be increased to 1,000 pounds.”

Well that certainly makes sense: If the bluefish are way down in numbers, we definitely want to allow the commercial boats to kill a lot more of them. Kill enough and maybe we can wipe them out totally.
