The Rfa is begging for money to finance their sea bass law suit. They are bashing large marine manufactures and other related business on the Bass Barn for not sending them money. In a nut shell, the RFA claims the science and data that the NMFS used to set the sea bass season is flawed, there for the recreational and commercial seas bass harvest should be increased. They continue to push for short term financial gain for a few, in complete disregard of the future of recreational fishermen,commercial fishermen ,marine manufacturing industry and the sea bass.
I think the reason that no major manufactures or larger and better financed recreational fishing organizations have joined the RFA lawsuit is due to this court decision http://www.joincca.org/press%20releases/2008/Rule_of_science.html
