Menhaden Restrictions... for real!

The headline has it as, "Menhaden harvest limit sharply cut," but is 5% really a "sharp" cut? I'd call it more of a trim, but I'm not that up on the science behind this one. Anyway, people seem pretty happy about this, so I guess I'll take it for what it's worth. Hopefully this will mean more, healthier stripers and osprey up and down the coast, and maybe even less algae clogging up the Bay, creating fewer dead zones. It could also cost some Virginians their jobs, if Omega Protein needs fewer employees. Time will tell.
