It's a basic principal of a predator vs prey relationship. And though it can be very dynamic it is also very simple. To much prey and not enough predators, prey pops will rise to such a degree, then they collapse and predators follow suit. We see it all through out nature. It's a simple checks and balance situation. If the data says its a 2:1 return of pen raised fished then we should pen more! If it comes down to a money issue, then I for one would pay more for a fishing license to help with costs. If natural reproduction is increasing and helping to supplement our population then we SHOULD be closing off known spawning sections of tribs to fishing, at least to a certain point in the season. No I'm not against river fishing, in fact I love to do it myself, but I personally would give up some prime river fishing to help promote an increase in our target species the KING! The more Mother Nature does on her own the less we have to be responsible for. However in a fishery such as this our responsibility to manage it will never truly end. I have been assisting Tom Allen in Oswegos pen project and though I don't do as much as I'd like or should, I still find a sense of pride in knowing I've helped give back to what I love to do here on the big pond. We don't need more lake trout, or Atlantics we need and want kings! Kings are what keep this fishing industry alive. Kings are what push local fishing communities and parts of their economy. We need more Kings!
