Fish Talk in the News – Friday, October 28
Update: Our new look will actually launch this Wednesday, November 2. Sorry for the delay!
We haven’t been posting as much as usual lately, but for a good reason! We’ve been hard at work planning a new look for TalkingFish.org, and it launches on Monday, October 31. Be sure to stop by and check it out!
From time to time, we like to keep you updated on the other news sources that have been “talking fish.” Here’s a quick look at some recent stories and websites that we think might interest TalkingFish.org readers:
- Earlier this week, the NEFMC held a two-day workshop in Portland, Maine to discuss lessons learned from the groundfish fishery’s first year under the sector management system. In conjunction with the meeting, NOAA released its final report on the performance of the fishery’s first year, which builds upon earlier reports and includes new information on fishery performance, leasing of quota, costs and employment. The NEFMC issued a press release summarizing the meeting, and TalkingFish.org will have our own meeting recap and analysis early next week.
- You may have already heard about it, but the Boston Globe did a big investigation of seafood fraud across the New England region. The paper’s website page about the story contains links to the multipart series as well as various interactive features to explore the story further. If you eat fish in New England, you’re going to want to read this.
- The Bar Harbor Times Soup wrote about the importance of maintaining fleet diversity in New England’s groundfish fishery, including a discussion of trends in the fishery and the upcoming development of Amendment 18, which will address the fleet diversity issue.
