#FishermensLivesMatter: Until this pandemic is over, say no to fishery observers being placed on fishing vessels

On July 1st the Trump Administration’s agency, NOAA will require that fishing vessels resume taking fishery observers on their fishing trips. Due to the Coronavirus pandemic these activities have been suspended for almost three months due to the danger of spreading the deadly disease among the
fishing industry and their families. Fishery observers are required by National Marine Fishery Service regulations to observe commercial fishing operations in almost all of our countries fisheries based on various criteria that include likelihood of interaction with marine mammals or other protected species, amount of bycatch in each fishery, adherence to regulations, and anything else they can justify to support this huge taxpayer money gobbling con game they have created. >click to read< by Jim Lovgren #FishermensLivesMatter 22:27

  1. The observer program is a total joke and a waste of time and money. While it conveniently finds problems to metaphorically allow NOAA to put their knees om the necks of fishermen, it also turns a blind eye to positive things that could actually help this industry.
    Hey Dr. Rosenberg, thanks for nothing. Hope your bank accounts are taking the same hit that fishing business’s are throughout the country. Business’s that actually work and produce something. Unlike yourself who just produces pain and suffering.
