I will go with E
My assumption is: decline in wt of shrimp caught is because they are caught at estuaries b4 they mature. So the wt might be less because 1. you catch young shrimp (irrelavant as non of the choices mention this) 2. As you dont allow them to mature, shrimp population is decilning.
The only way to stop it is to prohibit fishing in the "maturing" region

I may be wrong but I'll go with D.
Though I agree that the most obvious way to help out commercial fisherman would be to prohibit fishing in the estuaries. Choice E says "allowing recreational fishermen to move out of estuaries" there is however no hint in the paragraph to the effect that recreational fishermen are actually prohibited to fish in open seas. I believe making such an assumption is stretching the point. The paragraph says that recreational fishermen "are able" to fish in estuaries, implying that commercial fishermen can't do that.
Choice D would be a good way to control the amount of shrimp caught by recreational fishermen.
Comments are greatly appreciated!
Cheers!

Hi ob,

Good logic.

I agree with you.

E is wrong. going out of scope.

but i don't agree with you about choice D also..

becuase choice D says "putting upper Limit" not "Lower limit"

... so fishermen still able to young shrimps before they mature.

D - wrong

A,B - wrong - talking about commercial fisher man not recreational fisher man -- completely out of scope.

I think C is correct one which says" Use of Large mesh nets"

so fisher man will not able to net young shrimps.

Hi there syamee_u,

Thank you!

I actually vascillated between C and D.

An upper limit is the largest possible quantity :) I believe putting an upper limit is the most common procedure to curb things...
