"Business Maine: Commentary" piece by commercial fishing advocate Craig A. Pendl
"Business Maine: Commentary" piece by commercial fishing advocate Craig A. Pendleton, coordinating director of the Northwest Atlantic Marine Alliance (NAMA) in Saco. He says that new federal fishing regulations, called Amendment 13, disproportionately impact "mom-and-pop" fishing operations and the communities that depend on them, amounting to a privatization of a public asset. He names the reasons that smaller, inshore fishermen should by supported, from the freshness of their product to their lead in prompting conservation to their importance to fishing communities. NAMA's plan, crafted by scientists, economists, fishermen, environmentalists, and others, and submitted as an alternative management plan (the Gulf of Maine Inshore Fisheries Conservation and Stewardship Plan) is designed to recognize the historical, social, economic, and ecological differences between the inshore and offshore fleets.
