Great news from The Great Land....

The Governing Body of Fisheries off the Alaskan Coast has banned Bottom Trawling in over 370,000 square miles under its juridiction. This to protect sensittive coral and other important habitats and nursery areas.
It takes time to get the right rules enacted I proposed and got support from the United Fisherman of Alaska and its twenty some member organizations for this proposal over fifteen years ago. I remember most of my peers at the time telling me I was being perceived by most of the other members of our Board of Directors as being "Flippant and a bit too Green".
In politics winning is everything, and most times it takes so long to win that you seldom get any credit for the victory.
The victory is for the future of the Ocean, I am only paying my debt that I owe it.
