BP’s Politico puff piece wasn’t just shady journalism ethics — it was mostly a lie

Gloucester to take brunt of new NOAA fishing hits

manatthewheelThe port of Gloucester and its sector-based commercial fishermen could be crushed under emergency measures NOAA Fisheries is considering for Gulf of Maine cod, potentially losing as much as one-quarter of all groundfish revenues, according to a NOAA economic report.

Bering Sea fleet shrinks in face of catch shares

No profits found in this tangled catch – Fishermen taking a beating!

Heterosiphonia japonica RILocal fishermen this year have had a tough time with a species of red seaweed, an algae, that looks like matted hair. The algae began to bloom and spread in May. Nets would get fouled – often beyond recognition – and the fishermen would spend hours cleaning them, only to have their nets get “weeded up” on the very next tide. And to add insult to injury, when the weed was thickest, covering acres of the seabed, the nets would often be empty of fish. Read the rest here 13:23
