The problems our fisherman are facing

The first issue of concern is NOAA fishery surveys and the agency’s science that needs to be compared to independent fishing surveys and science. Presently, NOAA by law does not have to compare independent results before being added to the Magnuson – Stevens Act. The next issue is, we are losing our rich fishing grounds off of Cod Cape, and in Maine. We need to oppose ocean industrialization and compose a letter addressed to our local, state, and federal officials and our elected politicians, declaring our opposition. Looking at these problematic issues, it is easy to recognize that the loss of commercial fishermen, and fishing industry jobs and businesses will continue to evaporate and disappear, unless we take an offensive and unified stance. I suggest we consider implementing a U.S. Fish Bill. >click to read< By Sam Parisi, Gloucester, Mass 07:36
