from 388,000 in the Merrimac in 1989 to a little over 1,000 today.

bycatch exceeding 150,000 in one trawl recorded - more than the total return of three RI rivers

No monitoring of this catch takes place

Time for us to make voices heard... would you agree?

Yep, stuff like this is ridiculous. Did you catch 180 yet?

Yes - bought the DVD. Funny how a little flick like that can change my whole outlook on life.
