Editorial: NOAA chief’s stand to cut tuna limit must be last straw. Lubchenco has now shown her own disdain for fishery science itself.

They should also not be any surprise. She has, after all, ignored several calls for action from congressional leaders ranging from Congressman John Tierney to Sens. Scott Brown and John Kerry. And she has run her agency against the grain of the president’s own position, figuratively scoffing at his campaign promise to promote “jobs, jobs, jobs” by holding to her job-killing catch share management system that has produced a government-recognized “economic disaster” in New England and across the waterfronts of the Northeast.http://www.gloucestertimes.com/opinion/x1839361256/Editorial-NOAA-chiefs-stand-to-cut-tuna-limit-must-be-last-straw
