Florida Keys charter fishing crews take a hit in the wallet April 16 when it becomes illegal to sell dolphin caught on recreational for-hire trips.

“This is not good at all,” said Alex Adler, captain of the charterboat Kalex at Bud ‘n’ Mary’s Marina in Islamorada. “It’s going to be detrimental to a great many people and businesses.”
