Boater,

Hmmm...how does the system work?

It looks like a means to payback the Feds for buying out commercial fishing licenses.

Is that correct?

<font size="2" face="verdana,arial,helvetica">brion, i would have to say that any hatchery that supplies fish for the ocean trollers in oregon will never close, think about it, the feds want the money back and these guys have to fish to pay it back.

This is a groundfish license buy-back program that is funded by a poundage fee
levied against commercial fishermen. Every pound of fish sold now has some
sort of "tax" or fee levied. What this bill will do is make it legal to use
money collected thru poundage fees to be used to do a buy-back. No biggie.
It's been in the works for a couple of years.
