Menhaden need a break.
“The most important fish in the sea” has been put through more than 50 years of overfishing. The stock is at a record low. Who is suffering from the loss of menhaden? You are.
Omega Protein has been doing everything it can to prevent the implementation of a total allowable catch and a rebuilding effort. Despite all the evidence to the contrary, they maintain that menhaden are merely suffering from poor recruitment – their half billion pound harvest has nothing to do with it: Don’t let them get away with it!
Agree with all that? So do we.
