04.05.12 Back in time for the Bunker Public Hearing


     Tonight was Round 2, and with each progressing round it gets just a bit uglier. I made it back in time from the Catskills to hit Toms River with Paul Eidman from The Menhaden Defenders. It was the Public Hearing on the recent decision to reduce menhaden harvest 37%. Tonight was the hearing on the when and how to do it. The commercial fisheries had more support in the room then we did, and it showed.

Thanks to the fisherman and guides that came out, next time we need more help.
