The Cape Cod Commercial Fishermen’s Alliance (Hookers) is  bringing together dozens of fishermen for a training today to become Level 2  first responders to whale entanglements. National Oceanic and Atmospheric  Administration (NOAA) staff will certify the fishermen as part of its Disentanglement Network. NOAA is expected to release a proposed rule for new  whale entanglement avoidance measures on Monday. [email protected]
