NFC: Collecting issues /sales o fish

Given your strong feelings against collecing and selling fish ...how  do you
justify collecting and trading fish ? The fish are pillaged as you put it and
traded verses sold...I doubt the fish cares not wether he was sold or

You also seem to miss the entire point of a sanctioned collector. sanctioning
carries responsibility and  consequences. If  Darryl for instance turns out to
be a dead beat trader/seller he would lose his sanctioning be removed from the
website and be publically chastised. Or if he was caught following
enviromental practices contrary to those we have ageed upon he would be under

As far as the nFc is concerned  Aquarist are a side line. Its a side line I
have a soft spot for cause I am one but strident irrational discord does not

clout with the various fisheries agencies and insure his survival. So a
sanctioned NFC collector should be  percieved as  good thing. Conservationist
real enemy is the bulldozer not the dipnet. :)
