River Herring Decimation Needs Monitoring

http://www.youtube.com/herringalliance

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?

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