Future Brightens for Menhaden

Good stuff via Moldy Chum...hits here at home.

Finally some good news for the most important fish in the sea. 
After over a century of fishing without catch limits, the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission has finally put a cap on the fishery. The new abundance target is four times the current population and the coastwide catch limit will be reduced 20% from recent levels.
