A New York fishing pier may be the perfect spot for a family outing, but there’s a catch.
According to the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, the pier has to have a fishing license.
But that doesn’t mean a fisherman can fish for free.
The bureau has issued more than 400,000 licenses to licensees since it began regulating the fishing industry in 1966.
That’s more than twice the number of licenses issued to license holders in 2000, according to bureau data.
The license requirement isn’t as stringent as the industry would like, so it’s easy for licensees to flout the rules, said Mark Smith, a fisheries scientist at the U.S. Geological Survey.
That can leave fishermen with a license, but no fishing license or permits to catch fish.
That’s because they aren’t required to be licensed, and many licensees are just fishing illegally.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that there are approximately 100 million licensed commercial fish and wildlife trawlers in the United States, and more than 4 million commercial fishing licenses are issued annually.
The Bureau of Reclamation, which regulates the nation’s water, owns and operates more than 8 million commercial fisheries.
There’s a lot more going on than just fishing, though.
The bureau collects data on the number and type of fish and the amount of fish caught in the ocean, but those are often limited to the species listed in the license.
It’s a challenge to get the public to understand the actual impact on the environment, Smith said.
That could be a problem for some people who may not be familiar with the issues, he said.
The most popular species are cod, catfish, and swordfish, Smith noted.
But other species are also being caught.
Cod is caught mostly for value, while catfish is a common catch in the Gulf of Mexico, for instance.
Smith and other researchers have been tracking the fish catch and fishing operations for years.
They’ve studied the impact on marine life, including how the fishers catch and eat the fish.
The result is a report released this week that outlines the problems.
The study is part of the bureau’s Ocean Stewardship Initiative, a federal initiative to reduce fishing in the Pacific.
It also includes a draft report that will help the bureau improve its regulations to reduce the impact of illegal fishing on the public.
The report was done with input from the public, according the bureau, but the report isn’t yet complete.
The public can find out more about the report and its recommendations in a special webcast that’s available on the bureau website.
The findings of the report are based on data collected by the bureau for the past decade and a half, including surveys, analysis, and a review of existing data, according a release from the bureau.
They were published online in the March issue of the journal Environmental Science and Technology.
The results suggest that commercial fishery is a net negative for the environment because it requires an additional effort, not only to maintain the status quo, but also to maintain commercial fishing activities that are in line with federal laws, Smith told Reuters Health.
The findings could be used to improve the fishery regulations of other states, Smith added.
