RE:Maine Atlantic Salmon listed

Just in time. Not to start a controversial political argument, but there's no question that this would not have happened in a G.W. Bush administration. Now the question is can he overturn it? This will no doubt cost some people some measure of economic pain, especially in the aquaculture business down east. But just think of the status of the once mighty Cod. The destruction of that species triggered massive economic pain. Better management is the key.
Maybe the Atlantic Salmons time for protection has come too. This is a good first step. If not for the conservation efforts in this country we would be living in a sh&%hole and there would be no trout or stripers.
