- The Maine Public Broadcasting Network interviewed Earthjustice attorney Roger Fleming about efforts to protect river herring.
- Here is a really interesting column by Long Island sport fishing guide and Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council member John McMurray on the Magnuson-Stevens Act and how despite public perception, fishery management is working.
