SWCushing has brought up a "issue" that is really not valid. I don't think you will find any of the scientists growing rich off this lake. I had to get out of zoology because "there were no jobs" in the 1970s. Those who stayed in and got their doctorates sacrificed a great deal of potential wealth that they could have gotten in different career fields. Yes, there are grants, but nobody gets rich off biological study grants.
The reason for continuing study of this lake, and not letting fishing to occur, is to see the dynamics of the entire population. We (and I'm not one of the researchers) will never get another opportunity like this one and it should not be sacrificed to the desires of people to have a large fish on the line. Fishermen and women have ample opportunities elsewhere to fish.
