Businessman Simmons Wants to Fight Regulations, Protect Commercial Fisheries

Abden Simmons, R-Waldoboro, is running for Maine Senate District 13 and hopes to fight regulations, protect commercial fisheries, and encourage a shift to technical education in the state. Simmons was born and raised in Waldoboro and has been clamming since he was about 10 years old. If elected, he will work to fight regulations in order to protect the commercial fisheries in the state. He noted that fishermen should be able to catch more elvers, or baby eels, and the limits on catches need to be raised. Simmons bemoaned the threat posed by new regulations on the lobster industry handed down from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration that are designed to protect the North Atlantic right whale. >click to read< 08:55
