I think the Captain and Mates should be held accountable! They can not just look the other way when 100's of fish are being taken illegaly. They have a responsibility here since they are charging money to get anglers out in the ocean to fish. They should be stewards of the sea just like anyone else.
Funny how comms get called out because they are in it just for the money. Well any party boat that lets rampant poaching go on is in it just for the money.
If the story turns out to be true whatever boat it was will never see my money ever again!
you are 100% right the captain is responsible for what happens on his boatI couldnt agree more as according to maritime law the CAPTAIN is responsable for everything that goes on on his boat. Letting people break the law while you turn a blinds eye shows lack of respect for the fisheries in general
