Talking Fish Topics in the News – Friday, May 27
Some of the issues we’ve been discussing lately on Talking Fish have been featured in various other media venues. Here’s a sampling of such coverage:
- Last Friday, Peter Shelley wrote about the federal First Circuit Court of Appeals decision that told the U.S. Coast Guard that it had failed to meet its responsibilities to fully evaluate the potential environmental impacts of its decision to overrule protections Massachusetts put in place to prevent oil spills from coastal oil transport. As Peter wrote, the case will now be sent back to the Coast Guard to complete the necessary environmental review. The Cape Cod Times also published an opinion piece on the decision, in which the paper expressed expectations that “the Coast Guard will take its duty more seriously this time around.”
- Last week, the Climatide blog featured a post about NOAA’s interim report on the 2010 fishing year. Author Heather Goldstone does a great job of pulling out the highlights from the report, as well as flagging some “tantalizing tidbits” of information. (She also gives a much-appreciated shout out to Talking Fish – we blogged about the interim report two weeks ago.)
- NOAA Administrator Jane Lubchenco appeared on Charlie Rose earlier this week to talk about various ocean-related topics, including fisheries management – Dr. Lubchenco says she would like to end overfishing while she is at NOAA. Watch the video here.
Now that you’ve got some interesting articles and videos to keep you busy, Talking Fish hopes you have a great weekend!
