Default Re: Menhaden: an 86% decline

This is really unbelievable. It is amazing that this kind of large scale dredging of the waters is still allowed to happen. Helicopters and spotter planes? Really? If you've read Mark Kurlansky's book Cod: A Biography of the Fish that Changed the World, he sketches a picture of what our waters used to be like. I'm sure there can be a happy medium, but this just makes me sad.

So much for my morning, coffee fueled rant...
