The single biggest issue is the continued limitation of commercial fishing fleets worldwide, in foreign as well as U.S. waters. Because of advanced technology, the stocks of pelagic fish have been severely depleted. In the 35 years that I have been fishing professionally, I have seen a big decrease in fish populations. Because of organizations like The Billfish Foundation educating foreign governments on the economic value of a live billfish, I have seen the billfish stocks, as well as tuna, start to come back recently. In Costa Rica, we have suffered a serious decline in the yellowfin tuna population because of overfishing, but because of new regulations, our charter clients are slowly beginning to experience the thrill of catching them again.
