Commercial fisherman, Steve Welch of Plymouth, Mass. speaks against essential fish habitat proposals, and strongly opposes  mentality of regional fish council that is ruining our industry. Groundswell notes that such anti-Catch Share feelings are common among many in Alaska,,, We need to bottle Steve Welch’s boldness and right feelings and get far more fishermen to go to council meetings and tell them and the Secretary of Commerce that enough is enough.  It is time to end the hubris of RFMCs and their political appointees. Listen, and read the rest at groundswellalaska.com 14:36

    The very fact that Murkowski is Mitch McConnells gal is, at best, highly disturbing. This is the problem with elitist and entrenched politicians. I am a republican. But I certainly want much more of a change to occur in the federal delegation. I know that liberal dems are just as guilty as entrenched republicans. I was in DC with a lot of east coast fishermen advocating to stop catch shares for multi species and it was a shit show. The president wanted it, Lubchenco practically gave birth to it and this government will go to any length to shut down one of the last producing industries in this nation based on greed and ownership they are not entitled to. The fishermen are indebted to the citizens of this country to provide fresh healthy fish for the table. What has happened truly has broken my heart and in a sense, broken me.
