Congratulations to CBF Director of Fisheries Bill Goldsborough. Bill, who has directed CBF's Fisheries Program for 24 years, has recently been appointed to the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission (ASMFC) by Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley.
The ASMFC was founded in 1942 in recognition that fish don't abide by manmade state lines, so a fishery in the Chesapeake Bay may be impacted—and need protection—from Maine to Florida. This strategy was critical to the recovery of Chesapeake rockfish. It's a daunting task, but I think the fish are darn lucky to have a guy like Bill standing up for them.
