The New England Fishery Management Council is set to resume action on the contentious groundfish monitoring amendment next week, but the Gloucester-based Northeast Seafood Coalition is questioning whether the council is rushing its own process and operating with incomplete information. The council, scheduled to meet for three days next week in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, will return Wednesday to the arduous task of completing Amendment 23, which will set monitoring levels for vessels operating within the Northeast multispecies groundfish fishery. >click to read< 13:36

    As being a fishermen in the Gulf of Maine for 50 years , I have no CONFIDENCE in NEFMC DECISIONS !!! BECAUSE most of their counsel members ,whom are good & well educated people lack true ocean & fishing knowledge ?? Also the science being used by them, to make their decisions is old & outdated ?( BEST AVAILABLE ,IS NOT THE ANSWER TO SOLVE FISHING PROBLEMS)
    Our Fisheries Management Counsels must be fix , to be up to date on what is happening on our oceans today, not years ago ?? Our oceans are changing and fisheries management & regulations should be also changing !!
    These fisheries management counsel need more VETERAN commercial fishermen on their counsels to get better understanding of fishing , which would help in better counsel decisions ?
