Letter: Fish ‘reopenings’ another false premise- Captain PAUL COHAN F/V Sasquatch

To the editor:

All through the fisheries “crises’” over the past 25 years, the New England Fishery Management Council has always left the offshore fleet somewhere to fish — not so with the inshore fleet, which has been admittedly overburdened by extensive inshore closures, forcing them to tie up for periods of up to six months over the course of a season. http://www.gloucestertimes.com/letters/x674151426/Letter-Fish-reopenings-another-false-premise
