"Liberalized" Fishing: What is it?

I came across this video of so-called "liberalized" fishing. Even as someone who understands the benefits of being able to keep up to a limit of fish, I can't help but feel a bit appalled at the amount of waste laying around the lake. Can anyone give me a better idea of what liberalized fishing is all about, and if it really helps a lake environment in the long run? I can't imagine that it would, but I'd like to learn more. Maybe @Bobgriffith @mcgraffy or @dougjohnson know something they can share?

@fallingwater I think @mcgraffy pretty much hit everything. I don't really have a problem with no limit but people are still pretty disrespectful to what they leave behind; they'll probably clean up later I hope
Hey there @fallingwater basically what that means is that in that area, the oxygen levels were really low in the lake and so chances are the fish were going to do. so they lifted the limit so that fisherman could get fish out and at least use em before they died. usually any lakes that go through that get restocked after they thaw out, but I'm not sure about this one. Still, all that waste other fisherman left behind is kind of ridiculous...even these guys tossing them out is startling
@mcgraffy I'm not even sure what to think about that....I guess its good that fisherman are able to make the most of these fish in some ways but I just hope that the right regulations are in place as far as just yanking them out and leaving them lay there

Gulf Coast Lionfish Invasion
This video might seem like a huge haul, but lion fish are an invasive population that are harming the waters of the Gulf. In response to the Lionfish population growth which has exploded since 2010, the Gulf Coast Lionfish Coalition has formed in hopes of lowering the population of these invasive fish. Why is it so hard to lower this population number? Because they are eating other fish that are huge sources of food for the area, and people aren't really accustomed to eating lionfish, so the population has nothing keeping it in check. Learn some facts about why lionfish are being hunted like in the video above, and, if you're in the area, do your part to get the lionfish off the reefs! --------------------------------------------------------- Lionfish Facts! - Lionfish are not native to the Gulf of Mexico. They originate from the Indo-Pacific, and it is believed that they spread into the Gulf after they were released by aquarium owners in South Florida. - The Lionfish (Pterois sp.) is a non-native, invasive species originally from the Pacific. - Lionfish possess 13 dorsal, 2 pelvic, and 3 anal spines that are venomous and can cause a very painful stick if not handled carefully. - Lionfish have no natural predators in the gulf. - Lionfish are very difficult to catch using traditional hook & line fishing methods. - Lionfish stomachs can expand over 30 times in volume after consuming a large meal. - Lionfish are capable of releasing 30,000 eggs per week.
Love It Or Hate It: Do You Like To Go Fishing?
Welcome to the Funny Community game, Love It Or Hate It! This game is really similar to Monday's 'No Good or So Good' food game - except this one deals a lot more with non-food things. Every week, I highlight a different thing that a lot of people either really love or really hate and see how our community feels overall! This week, I want to know: How do you feel about fishing? For some of us, fishing is a whole lot of fun outdoors! While others think the whole fishing thing is all kinds of savage. How about you? Is fishing something you LOVE or absolutely HATE to do? @Inaritricx @Taijiotter @AimeeH @XergaB20 @JustinaNguyen @RainaC3 @bnrenchilada @destiny1419 @arnelli @Luci546 @Ash2424701 @GingerMJones @zwdodds @LenaBlackRose @misssukyi @TerraToyaSi @kneelb4zod @BrookeStam @RachelParker @JaxomB @ultraninja10 @reyestiny93 @MattK95 @MajahnNelson @petname83 @BluBear07 @melifluosmelodi @ZoilaObregon @GossamoKewen95 @TracyLynnn @TiffanyWallace @VixenViVi @DenieceSuit @ButterflyBlu @CelinaGonzalez @MaighdlinS @maddiemoozer @VeronicaArtino @iixel @TomHawthorne @DominiqueThomas @ElizabethT @RiggaFoster @AluSparklez @kvnguyen @chris98vamg @WiviDemol @animechild51 @2Distracted @cthulu @jazziejazz @JessicaChaney @shantalcamara @J1mbleJ4mz @Beeplzzz @carmaa10 @MayraYanez @Kamiamon @HeatherWright @MischiefK1ng @SeoInHan @ShonA @KennyMcCormick @MooshieBay @IMNII @Ikpoper @humairaa @merryjayne13 @zoemvillarreal @lilleonz @ChristinaOMalle @AllieGrabowski @baileykayleen @KarleyFrance @Ticasensei @EasternShell @musicundefined9 @peahyr @TerrecaRiley @MoisEsGaray @atmi @AlidaGarman @sanRico @orenshani7 @jannatd93 @ReadAnimateSwim @Astrohelix @dimplequeen @ChildofSparda13 @grapetoes2000 @sarahpjane @LittleHorn @justinasarmento @deilig @GalaxyTacoCat @amobigbang @LAVONYORK @Jason41 @kpopdeluxegirl @BlackDragon88 @Bobs @paularasnick @Animaniafreak @YumiMiyazaki @Patmanmeow @MarvelTrashcan @kawaiiporpoise @Xiuyeolhyun @MaggieHolm @xDaisyDaysx @yaakattackk @Starbell808 @KyleBerke @fatimajj23 @GabrielMarques @Alletaire @kkimberlyy @Priscillasdoor @chrisg3584 @brandontearss @bradleygialamas @justme29 @buddyesd @changoleon @Sara3 @felicityautumn @ssora @MorghanPorter @IzamarPalomo @realjoy @Heartofgold35 @mscocoasupreme @MyFunkySpell @ChakiahWallace @Krystalstar22 @KarlythePanda66 @JoeyNelson @TonyLepera @dianes6711 @Aripendragon @MichelleHolly @AviannaLin @seouls @AustinThurston @Sammyjuicoooo @divanicola05 @RavenQueen0810 @captpeter @Kourtland @Tsukasakrdcd @MistyTaylorByrd @MariPili @TylerCassalata @SarahRegulski @Melodicballoon @heyitskat @KellerBertrand @jiggzy19 @gogglesghost @BanalataBera @JayAi @mpandy @Gibbous1992 @Kody18 @ctsr1 @iamaweirdoo @Jasminep96 @CynthiaForeman @MzDawson31508 @MundaneGirl @DeniseNishikawa @lvplus2 @YourConscience @Bose @wrightally15 @jla23 @tiffany1922 @bettytolliver @Pocahontas41 @Dojjin @MelissaGarza @donmarques6 @VanessaAcosta @HollasiS @karlkahambwe @LexTrilly @HikariAkuhei @xander1981 @LinnyOk @colvitt @Isolate @Birdy915 @Nerdydemigod @na11 @CristalTrujillo @camilletoomer @selfishmachines @JonanthanP
