Lynch says the government should not be afraid to contract with outside sources for data.

He adds, the government must do a better job of managing the fishing crisis, so fishermen can still remain in business.

Lynch and Congressman Edward Markey are seeking the Democratic nomination for U-S Senate.  The primary election is April 30.
