"News & Issues" piece on a failed effort to reopen recreational fish for Atlanti
"News & Issues" piece on a failed effort to reopen recreational fish for Atlantic salmon. The 8-3 vote last week by the Legislature's Inland Fisheries and Wildlife Committee reversed an earlier endorsement of an angling season in some rivers. The Atlantic Salmon Commission had canceled the statewide season for 2000, given the critically low wild salmon population. The bill, sponsored by state senator Richard Ruhlin, D-Brewer, was opposed by Gov. Angus King, Inland Fish and Wildlife, Trout Unlimited, the Nature Conservancy and the Audubon Society.
