The Menhaden are in worse shape than the herring. Restrictions of epic proportion should be place on this vital food source, then once the bait is saved, most all other suffering species have a better chance of rebounding . Enforcement should be the second greatest topic on the council's agenda. The over fishing WILL continue without strict monitoring. Please be our voice at this important conference and speak out against the gluttony.

Thanks, Jack. CBF and partners worked with the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission on this issue, and the commission as a result imposed a 20 percent reduction in the allowable catch of menhaden.

More needs to be done to protect this important species, but this is a starting point.
