Regional Fishery Management Councils speak out
Two recent events ruffled enough feathers in the federal fisheries management system to cause regional Councils to “go public” with their objections. To date this has been something that the Councils, their members and staffs have generally been averse to, maintaining low profiles while doing the best job possible in balancing competing interests while dealing with a seeming landslide of both legal actions and publicity financed by several mega-foundations intent on imposing their collective will on the management system and the fishermen it manages.
The first of these was a request by the Council Coordination Committee, to which all 8 of the regional Councils belong, to Gib Brogan, Pew/Oceana’s Oceans Campaign Manager, that inaccuracies in the recent Pew/Oceana report on bycatch be addressed. The letter took 9 pages to detail – and document – these inaccuracies. The conclusion to the letter ends with the words “While we acknowledge that there are no laws requiring Oceana reports to accurately represent the best available scientific information or to undergo peer review, to do so would be in the best interest of all involved parties. This is why we suggest that you retract the report until it is reviewed and corrected.” I’d suggest that no one hang by their thumbs while waiting for that to happen. In fact, when New Bedford Times reporter Steve Urbon contacted Pew/Oceana about it the response he got, from Oceana fishing campaign manager Dominique Cano-Stocco, was "Oceana will not retract the 'Wasted Catch' report, which uses the most recent and comprehensive data available from the federal government.”
The Coordination Committee letter to Gib Brogan is at http://tinyurl.com/lwl4ulh (I didn’t use the original URL because it is 132 characters long). Steve Urbon’s article, titled Oceana pitches flawed fishing report undeterred, is at http://tinyurl.com/Steve-Urbon-Oceana (ditto).
I’ll report on the Western Pacific Regional Pacific Management Council’s reaction to President Obama’s cavalier creation of a huge no fishing zone, titled Obama Administration’s Proposed Pacific Remote Islands Marine National Monument Expansion Betrays US Fishermen, Places Unfair Burden on US Pacific Islands, next week. If you can’t wait, the press release is at http://tinyurl.com/WPRMC-Obama (and ditto again).
