Council accepts mayor’s appeal on yellowtail flounder By Steve Urbon

John Haran, who manages Sector XIII, a group of groundfish boats with members from New Bedford to Greenport, N.Y., was at Wednesday’s meeting and said he could not say what the effects of the council’s votes would be on local fishermen.
