    You want to help the world's oceans and fish populations? Lobby the UN to stop turning a blind eye to fishing fleets from 3rd and 2nd world countries and, most importantly: ASIA. Lobby your congressmen to join those who want to keep foreign fishing fleets out of our Federal Waters. Stop eating imported seafood of ANY kind.

    but seriously tho i think it was timothy Leary who said that we have already "soiled the nest" and the only hope of mankinds preservation is in the stars, at the gates of space travel. I agree, but don't agree entirely. If we don't live to live sustainable and in harmony with our own planet as a species, well just be like those aliens in Independence Day that Will Smith had to **** Up. Just being aliens, cruising the galaxy, and raping planets dry for their resources, killing whatever lifeforms try to stop us, and moving on to the next planet when the one we just raped is a mere husk. We stand at an evolutionary precipice right now both consciously and physically. A crossroads if you will, kinda like what Luke faced in Star Wars. We can either transcend to become a harmonic constructive entity of nature, spreading virtue and health throughout the universe, or we can become destructive consumptive entities, an essential virus on the existential plane we inhabit.

    Idk man, ripped the binger pretty hard for that one.

    The key is to eat local seafood that comes from fishermen who live in your community--they have just as much at stake in terms of viable fisheries and are generally active in conservation... although it may not toe the agenda-driven narrative coming from PEW and NOAA.

    Just another tidbit: NC Shrimpers are collectively coming together right now to address reducing and in some cases eliminating by-catch and seafloor habitat interaction in their fishery. Some of the finer points they have come up address the regulations as to where TED's and FED's are supposed to be placed on a trawl (current placement mandated by the feds is not optimum and it's illegal to put them anywhere else... even if it means 100% safe turtle ejection), ways to add additional sorting nets within a trawl that immediately directs by-catch (currently illegal, period), adding culling tanks on the boats, shortening trawl times, etc...
    My point is, these folks know that we're all in this together. There is no such thing as an industrial shrimping operation in NC, these folks own maybe two traditional shrimp trawlers at most. So, I support these people by buying as much NC seafood as I can afford and refusing to eat ANY seafood that comes any further away than the East Coast.


    Sorry for the rant, I've just got a chip on my shoulder about the "all fishermen are killing the ocean" narrative...
    Totally agree. I only eat local seafood and fish. Our local fisherman are all part of small locally owned businesses, and almost all of them realize that the ocean is their livelihood. They also understand when it is safe to fish specific animals based on rain runoff, pollution, reproduction cycles, and migration.

    Hey Trevolution, do you give out parking tickets all baked and shoot? When is A&E doing a Wrightsville beach version of PARKING WARS?

    I give you credit Trevolution. You try on here. Since my return it's like everyone has been sedated on here. Yeah, yeah it was usually nothing but five word posts from dudes who take this stuff way too seriously, but there's some cool people on here. They should know who they are. But there's also a lot of delusional types who think they are "proper" and think they know what they are talking aboot. People report each other on here. A SURFING WEBSITE !! They tattletale if they don't like someone's content because THEY don't agree with it or it's not up to their "standards." That's crazy and pathetic. Sissies.

    But Trevolution, you got substance to you. As for being college-aged, yeah so what dudes? He's more philosophical than most others. I guess, Trevolution, that there's alot of older, jelaous dudes out there who probably don't surf too well and they get upset. It sucks getting old, Trevolution. Try not to. Ha............

    Hey Trevolution, let me ax you, when should I stop wearing my 5 mil up here in Nueve Yersey? How aboot the gloves? Man, I don't mean to lay this heavy stuff on you but I'm muy confused.
