9/9 - Oregon Fish Flap: Choosing between fish and families?
Here's an article that presents a fishery closure as the choice to save slimy fish at the cost of ruining families. As if the government has sold out to PETA and just wants to keep fish from being harmed. How about the choice to reduce fishing so there's something around for the next generation?

Happy Oregon family men
So they lose their jobs as fishermen--why not try ecotourism as an alternative? Turn those fish charter boats into dive charter boats.
There is a potential opportunity here to show ecotourists a recovery--take people out, show them the depleted fishery and then bring them back every year to see how things IMPROVE!!!
Take pictures, not game.
