After reading their resolution, the only threat that seems credible to me is the
danger of vendors selling wild-caught sturgeon and passing them off as legally
harvested commercial sturgeon. Balance this against the reduction of pressure
to poach wild fishes, since one can obtain them legally. What do you guys think?
