Fish Talk in the News – Friday, April 27

  • Last week, the U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee approved a spending bill for the 2013 fiscal year that includes a provision that would close the Northeast Regional Office of the National Marine Fisheries Service, currently located in Gloucester, and move most of its operations to NMFS national headquarters in Silver Spring, Maryland. Here’s a Gloucester Times article on the proposal, and keep an eye out next week for a opinion piece on this topic.
  • The Washington Post had an article last weekend about sustainable seafood certification programs and the debate over whether or not buying fish with a sustainable ranking from a certain program means you are really doing less harm to the marine environment.
  • WBUR, Boston’s NPR news station, talked to Legal Sea Foods President and CEO Roger Berkowitz about his company, the state of New England seafood, and this weekend’s teach-in on sustainable seafood.
