Federal Fish Fascism

New Federal regulations are crippling small fishing businesses in New England.  The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association has set hard catch limits on groundfish such as cod and haddock, the backbone of the New England fishing industry for centuries.  In the past fishermen were limited by number of days at sea, new regulations instead set strict limits to pounds of fish each boat can bring in per year
