New Bedford Mayor Jon Mitchell testified before a Congressional subcommittee Tuesday in Washington, DC that Congress should consider amending the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act, while the statute is under consideration for reauthorization.
Governor Charlie Baker has sided with a dozen state lawmakers and local officials who are urging the proceeds from the forfeiture of "Codfather" Carlos Rafael's fishing fleet, and any financial penalties tied to his case, be used to pay for electronic catch monitoring.
The U.S. Interior secretary is giving voice to the return of commercial fishing to a year-old marine national monument about 130 miles southeast of Cape Cod, a move that addresses concerns raised by the industry but was blasted Monday by environmental groups.
The future of a national monument off the coast of Massachusetts is unclear Thursday after Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke wrapped up a review of 27 monuments, but did not publicly disclose his recommendations.
In his weekly appearance on WBSM, Mayor Jon Mitchell explains why, under the government's current plan, 'Codfather' Carlos Rafael could make millions from his jail cell while doing time for his admitted fishing scheme.
