Good News! There's so many cases showing how practical, longer-term management of such fisheries/wildlife habitats pays many more benefits than the costs.

The little guy in the Bay wins. Reedville will survive with a few less menhaden in the fleets' nets.

We observed one never-before-mentioned negative about these fleets as we sailed by one VERY active fleet in shallow waters at the mouth of the Piankatank River last fall. Huge plumes of bottom sand/dirt followed the big ships as they "plowed" through these fragile river bottoms. Any oysters trying to survive there were doomed. Does anyone monitor these ships?
