    Thank you for paying attention, Senator. But for many generations, this area off Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket is the most prolific Squid spawning grounds on the East Coast and therefore vital to the entire coast. What would help the fishing industry is to keep these shysters the hell off the fishing and spawning grounds. Otherwise we’re looking at the beginning of the end for an iconic multi-$billion clean and healthy food producing fishery!
