In recent years, shrimp harvests of commercial fishermen in the South Atlantic have declined dramatically in total weight. The decline is due primarily to competition from a growing number of recreational fishermen, who are able to net young shrimps in the estuaries where they mature.
Which of the following regulatory actions would be most likely to help increase the shrimp harvests of commercial fishermen?
(A) Requiring commercial fishermen to fish in estuaries
(B) Limiting the total number of excursions per season for commercial fishermen
(C) Requiring recreational fishermen to use large-mesh nets in their fishing
(D) Putting an upper limit on the size of the shrimp recreational fishermen are allowed to catch
(E) Allowing recreational fishermen to move out of estuaries into the South Atlantic

C it is. C and D were contenders
D can be negated because even though the size of shrimps is smaller, the total weigth of shrimps per catch could still stay the same as stated by premise: "shrimp harvest... by total weigth"

Paul,

D) *can't * be a contender at all.

The argument is essentially saying that since recreational fishermen catch the young fish in the esturies before they mature(and grow big and heavy) most of the fish caught by commercial fisherman now are less mature (and hence less heavy). Earlier commerical fisherman would catch fish which had plenty of time to mature undisturbed in the estury.

Imposing a *upper* limit like D) suggests would just make the problem worst.
