Isn’t it won­der­ful - more tourists in our com­mu­nity - which is great for busi­ness - which means more money - which means more job cre­ations

The av­er­age age of a male mar­lin is about 18 years and a fe­male is about 25 years of age. So I would say its about 15 years old if its a male and about 20 - 22 years old if a fe­male.

So it is OK to sup­port the stuff that comes in a box at the lo­cal chain store, that is shed by the thou­sands on boats that rape our seas, but one large sh off a rod is shame­ful? I think pri­or­i­ties may be lack­ing and sit­ting be­hind a PC/ phone has pre­vailed.
