### HideShow timer Statistics

1. 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 shrimp 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 user large-mesh nets
in their fishing
D. Putting an upper limit on the size of shrimp recreational
fishermen are allowed to catch
E. Allowing recreational fishermen to move out of setuaries
into the South AtlanticCC

Is it C?
D is ambiguous. What's upper level? Max size of fish? Who cares about max size? It's a min size that matters... Or may be <upper level> means MIN? I'm not sure, that's why my choice is C.

D is obviously wrong. Putting a minimal limit on the size of shrimp recreational fishermen are allowed to catch would be helpful.

An upper limit means that baby-shrimps are legal to be caught.

C looks fine.
