Just when you thought you had seen it all with House Bill 353 game fish designation, Coastal Conservation Association (CCA) now expands its influential terrorist death grip to not only commerce but to include individual freedoms and privileges afforded low income and the under privileged.
Totted as law giving preference to wealthy and affluent, HB353 would make it illegal to sell red drum, striped bass, and speckled trout, removing them from seafood markets, and relegating 100% of the three fish to those who can afford to travel to the coast, purchase a saltwater fishing license and catch their own.
CCA has historically deployed the game fish scam in every coastal state in a methodical ponzi scheme to not only eliminate the commercial fishing industry in several states by robbing fishermen of their ability to use nets to harvest seafood, but now expands its efforts in an outright assault on individual freedoms and rights to catch a fish.
To complete the CCA sequestration of resources on behalf of wealthy and affluent fishermen, SB571 is now slated to eliminate permits issued by the NC Department of Social Services (DSS) for subsistence fisherman and deprive even the poor and under privileged their ability to catch a fish of any kind. In 2009, DSS issued 15,510 subsistence fishing waivers.
North Carolina Seafood Alliance supports the rights of all citizens to fish, and urges all immediately contact state representatives and tell them to stop this assault on individual liberty and freedoms, with outright discrimination contained in both HB353 and SB571.
