"States from Maine to Florida voted Wednesday to set new, strict limits on catching menhaden from coastal waters and the Chesapeake Bay, handing environmentalists and sports fishermen a major victory in how this important little fish is managed.

"This is great news for jobs, for our economy and for a society that values wildlife," Will Baker, president of the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, said in a statement after the vote.

At a meeting in Boston culminating more than a year of scientific calculations, loud public hearings and more than 90,000 public comments, the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission adopted targets and thresholds intent on restoring menhaden stocks coastwide.

Once implemented after another year of study and debate, the measures are expected to reduce harvests by up to 37 percent - cuts that Virginia officials say will be damaging to the menhaden industry centered in the Northern Neck town of Reedville and to watermen who catch and sell the oily fish as bait.

The economic fallout "could be enormous," said Jack Traveslstead, Virginia director of fisheries, who represents the state on the coastal commission. "It's going to cause a lot of hurt. There's going to be job loss. And I suspect the price of crab bait probably just went up by 40 percent or so."

It's a oily fish that just about everything that swims eat.

  Charlie the Tuna  is greatly over whelmed and please by the Fisheries decision to limit Menhaden limits. Charlie states “ It's about time someone stands up and does something for our socially repressed cousins. There are other alternatives and it is time to look at them.”

  Meanwhile back in the barnyard there are rumors stating Foghorn J. Leghorn and Clarabelle The Cow seem more friendly then ever. It is reported Foghorn and Clarabelle may be entering into some private negotiations. It is rumored these negotiations could lead to an end of the Chick Fil A war.

  In an interview with Foghorn J. Leghorn about these rumors and his feelings on the Fisheries
 Menhaden limits his reply was short and pointed, “Myself and the rest of my feathered friends are tired of sticking our necks out.”

   Clarabelle The Cow was equally short and point in her reply when asked about the rumor alliance between she and Foghorn regarding the Chick Fil A war . She simply stated “My lips are sealed.”

  Daffy Duck and Ferdinand Bull were said to be on vacation however it is believed these two where in secret negotiations during the very time our interviews were taking place.

There definitely appears to be some kind of organized movement in the Barnyard. This just in from Youtube.

More overreg's that make no sense, just like the spiny dogfish which is devastating the young 'Tog/SeaBass on the wrecks.
