New fishing advocacy group, the Center for Sustainable Fisheries, has ambitious agenda

viewer call to action!New Bedford – The first board meeting of the fledgling advocacy group calling itself the Center for Sustainable Fisheries on Wednesday elected former U.S. Rep. Barney Frank as chairman and retired UMass marine scientist Dr. Brian Rothschild as its president and CEO. Former Mayor Scott Lang, who has been steering the organization, said that with both of those men retiring, it was the “perfect opportunity” to bring them into a group that wants a “rational plan” for fisheries management. The group, which hopes to have national reach, has raised $105,000 in three weeks, Lang said. But as it sets out to be a counterweight to environmental groups that have millions of dollars of foundation money at their disposal, fund-raising will be a major issue for the new center.

    Hey guys & gals;
    I strongly suggest that you at least check out the CSF’s website & learn more about the goals & scope of the organization. It’s a new group with a new concept & they are looking for new members throughout the country & suggestions about what their issues need to concentrate on. The first matter of business at hand is the “Reauthorization of Magnuson” & all that it entails.

    Thanks;
