Sentinel, Tourism, Food and sport fishery to set commercial quotas

After watching the recent Senate committee meetings on the fishery. It occured to me that the best way to set quotas would be to have a sentinel, tourism, sport fishery first and set commercial quotas depending upon the catches in those fisheries as a percentage of the catch.

Not only would this give value added to the fish caught by involving more people in a sport, tourism, and sentinel fishery but it would have a built in sustainable quota system in that the TAC of the commercial fishery would depend upon the catch of the less damaging less impact sentinel, tourism, and sport fishery each and every year.

Some more changes that should be considered can be found in the AIM's Ideas matters articles on the fishery and aquaculture.
