California fishers say quota system is all wet

I smell a lawsuit in the making.  Damned if you do.  Danmed if you don't.  This just sounds like yet another law that was supposed to help the little guy but as usual, the little guy gets stabbed in the chest, facing the culprit:  the Federal Government.

"Financially, I can only say that multiple trips have been cancelled due to a lack of availability of these monitors, millions of pounds of fish have not been caught, processed and sold to markets and this is a loss of millions of dollars," said Michael Lucas, president of North Coast Fisheries Inc., in a letter to federal regulators.
