What do commercial guys do?

"What do commercial guys do for the state except leave a smelly trail of greed and dead fish in their wake?" Hmmmm......let's see......how about these: They are a key part of our overall business environment, employing many North Carolinians at sea... They require fuel, provisions, equipment, and maintenance, thus assuring employment for many other North Carolinians.... They bring in a product that is enjoyed by millions and employs another large number of people in shipping, preparation and serving, or selling.... ...all of which means that commercial fishing provides the livelihood for thousands of North Carolinians, and generates one large catch of corporate and individual income taxes to the state. Both sides need to cooperate and respect each other's view to solve the problem of overfishing. Overly emotional statements that deny economic reality do nothing for the cause.
