from what I understand these tuna are very rare and if the government where to allow them to be caught with different methods they would probably be fished into extinction much quicker than they are being currently

How can he be in violation if he accidentally caught the fish. Come on let em keep it.

Re: Man Catches 881 Pound Tuna, Fed's Seize the Fish

In the USA the road to state despotism has tended to creep in so slow under seemingly positive, small controls like fishing licences/water protection. One by one this special interest and that special interest plucks .01% of the public's liberty while the consequence taken individually goes practically unnoticed.

Kind of like how another Federal (Kennedy actually) beauty - the Wetlands Protection Act hailed by environmentalists and locals as 'protecting natural beauty' has destroyed the ability for necessary coastal improvements and the construction of bridges and tunnels unless of course you're paid or favored in with the 'Gub-Mint'. Jeez sounds like Feudalism eh?

I mean that's how this came about: environmentalists and probably concerned fishermen just like this guy campaigned and rallied and complained their asses off about the horrors over fishing years ago and begged the 'Feduwal gub-mint' for action - and got it walking away to the victory dinner happy and smug flush with victory.

We'll hopefully count this guy and his crew and their families as several to several dozen more active voters/citizens who will possibly be more concerned about their rights and rights to our waterways.

Obviously not!

yeah it's a bummer for this guy, but think about it. there are good reasons for the laws we have regarding fishing.

do we really want to over fish like Japan and have nothing left?

Re: Man Catches 881 Pound Tuna, Fed's Seize the Fish

The main point is that these guys net fish for bottom feeders and are not known to illegally catch fish. It should have been theirs immediately as an illegitimate but permitted '[sur]prize catch'.

Regulation and subsequent punishment are meant to set reasonable ground rules and enforce them through penalties on intentional offenders. This was, no pun intended, a fluke incident.

I mean, if you come across a gold nugget while walking along the river of a natural preserve that posts signs saying 'No Mining Or Panning' do you throw it back or ignore it? If you're known not to be a miner or prospector should you benefit from your random encounter?

This is why I feel states and municipalities handle wildlife preservation / fishing&hunting and things like the EPA and NOAA shouldn't even exist, or at least should be relocated to the private sector.

How the fuck does a Tuna fish sell for $400k? That's ridiculous.

Re: Man Catches 881 Pound Tuna, Fed's Seize the Fish

i understand what you are saying curious observer, and while i may believe this man did catch this tuna by accident, there is no way to prove that every fisherman does not have an accidental catch. that's why a line has been drawn where it has.
