Nothing new here. For as long as I can remember the EDF has told NOAA and NOAA law enforcement that fishermen were not much more than common criminals. Most with little or no education or worth. I saw it first hand and am not proud of any part I played in it as a NOAA LE supervisor. Just Ask Special Agent in Charge Hal Robbins of the southeat region what he really thinks of comerical fishermen? I am not sure however he would know how to be truthful at this point. He has demonstrated little use for being honest in the past.
