The present fishery that worries me the most is the squid fishery. For the last few years it seems I have seen more and bigger boats from Alaska coming here to fish squid. At the same time the size of the spawns seems to have diminished. Since squid is such a major portion of the food chain I very worried about overfsihing of this resource.
I hope the departmant is montitoring this fishery. I do not want to see the population collapse, as it did with sardines many years ago.
