I agree, but am a little reserved because of the language that involves the La. Oyster Task Force.

This should be a no brainer for the state; trip tickets can be checked against license, processor is required by law (fed/state) to keep these records for inspection, bust the processor if he cheats and fishermen if they cheat. There will never be enough wardens to keep the thiefs honest on the water so find another way like the Feds did with the mob (RICO). If the processors license can be pulled for improper record keeping he will have a vested interest in making sure the fishermen only sell him a daily limit. Anyone caught should have all gear confiscated on the first offense and fined 10x the total # of pounds stolen from the residents of Louisiana.
