Letter: Fishermen must band together – Sam Frontiero, Gloucester – do what you have to do

I’ve been writing letters as a fishermen’s advocate for years now because I was a fisherman for almost 40 years, it’s been the history of my family for generations, and still is.

NOAA isn’t going to quit, so do what you have to do. Read the letter
