Fishneedbikes for pointing us to today’s story.
Even though the present Obama administration clamors on about saving jobs at every turn they apparently don’t think the fishing industry needs any protection. Hundreds of anglers protested the closing of various saltwater fisheries by the Obama Administration’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. An Interagency Ocean Policy Task Force was appointed by President Obama to create a plan for managing ocean and coastal waters as well as the Great Lakes. What has recreational anglers worried is an Administration that has given the power to arbitrarily close fishing as they see fit without regard to the jobs that would be lost due to such closures. Anglers also worry that this will likely lead to Federal intervention in local States fish and game laws.
