Federal government to increase at-sea monitoring to 100%.

At-sea monitors are workers who collect data on board commercial fishing boats to help inform regulations and management of species. The government approved the new, higher percentage of trip cover on Tuesday, said Michael Pentony, regional administrator with NOAA’s Greater Atlantic Regional Fisheries Office in Gloucester. The rules apply to valuable species that are harvested in the Northeast such as cod, haddock and flounder. Pentony said the new rules will replace the old process of calculating a target for the level of monitoring coverage every year. The coverage target will instead be 100% for four years as long as federal funding can support agency and industry costs, he wrote in a letter to fishery managers. >click to read< 16:24

    Hoping the 100% At-Sea Monitoring will give a better assessment of our fish stocks & also will be used with the R/V Bigelow’s Surveys to determine the true picture our fish stocks , which is given to our commercial & recreational fisheries quotas !!Most countries uses two or more methods to assess fish stocks .

    I was ver disappointed to see a reply from a fisherman to the GDT basically saying that his opinion was that cameras aboard vessels is the way to deal with this intrusion. Basically saying if you are opposed to his line of thinking then you must have something to hide. It saddens me that people would choose to have their constitutional rights trampled on without question. I had to reply as follows.

    Insinuating that fisherman who oppose this intrusion are cheating and have something to hide is an insult to those who prefer freedom over tyranny thrust upon them by an ever intrusive government. If the pandemic mandates haven’t been proof enough that they want to control everything in our lives then I truly feel sorry for you.
    And for those who choose to fight for their God given rights, don’t ever give up. This nonsense has to stop.

    I stand by my words!

    “Give an inch, take a mile”. If we lose our rights, we quickly become China.

    People are jumping from apartments, children separated from parents. (Using 82% false positive tests). Pets are being euthanized. God knows what fate awaits those being imprisoned in quarantine camps.

    This has nothing to do with fish stocks. Just like the shots aren’t about your health.

    Unite against the cabal.
