Senator Scott Brown came to Gloucester to demand the ouster of NOAA Chief Jane Lubchenco. Her policies continue to drain the life blood of our fishing industry the fishermen and their families. For years fishermen have sacrificed to rebuild fish stocks under the ever tightening of NOAA's regulations. As fish stocks rebounded the noose became tighter. Mismanagement by NOAA has the fishing industry in peril. There is no fisherman that wants to fish themselves out of a job and monitoring and regulating needs a fine balance to maintain a sustainable stock with sustainable fishing jobs. NOAA is essential to monitor the health of the oceans and the fish stocks. It's time for NOAA to help the fishermen and stop destroying them!
