There has been some considerable controversy over Westmarine's efforts to help recruit members to The Ocean Conservancy (TOC) on page 4 of their recent flyer. I received a personal message from their Chairman of the Board and founder, Randy Repass. He will look into some of the erroneous statements that the president of TOC made, blaming sportfishers for the depletion of certain fish species. Mr Repass seems to be very concerned about this and doesn't want to do anything to harm sportfishing. I hope to have a report for you all what transpires in all of this. Below is a link to my open letter to Westmarine, which documents the claims TOC made against sportfishing.
