Our local fishermen have been working for 10 years under a fishing grounds rebuilding plan that is arbitrary and without any support or foundation in good science. There are so many conflicts with it.

On Wednesday, the spotlight is on the fishermen paying for monitors that could likely put the fishermen out of business. There is a lawsuit challenging the government's authority to impose that requirement. On January 13, at 10 am, four experts will join me to discuss topics that apply to the fishing industry in 2016.

This program promises to shed sunlight on problems that are drowning the fishing industry. Call-in number for listeners is 508-996-0500.
