Due to climate change, poorly thought-out regulations and rampant development our working waterfront has never been more at risk. Our shellfish industry (the only family scale fishing industry) in particular is under attack and needs saving and help. The latest NOAA requirements are not even aligned with NOAA’s own findings. My professional background makes me uniquely qualified to address this injustice before it is too late. For starters why are lobstermen being made the scapegoat when the Cruise and Shipping industries are clearly having a greater negative impact on right whale populations?
