In November 1989, the NMFS announced that Commercial Reef Fisherman who did not enter the buisiness before Nov 7th 1989 could not be assured future access to the resource. This was NMFS first ground work for LEP's in the Gulf and South Atlantic. If NMFS were to use this as a criterion for a LEP how many commercial reef fisherman would be left? We are talking businesses going back this far, not individual capitans who change companies.
