This is the incremental approach and will give draggers all the time they need to get their house in order. Most all the valuable species that bottom draggers (NPT-non-pelagic trawlers) catch can be caught by other more selective gear types. Convert or go out of business. We cannot afford to lose the ocean's productivity because draggers won't change. Just because they have been doing it wrong for a long time doesn't mean they should be allowed to continue. Biomass fisheries are unsupportable.
