Check it out -- in the words of the Maryland Star Democrat:
"...the industry put forth four recommendations with an all-or-nothing, in-your-face attitude. All four were voted down. Then, Greenpeace made the proposal to shut down the menhaden fishery altogether to let the species recover. That proposal by a 2.5-million member organization with a record of hard-nosed conservation activities, has changed the tide of menhaden management."
The article also has an excellent title: "Up The Creek: Old-timers can recall a much healthier Bay."
I shall refrain from raving about Greenpeace because people from some of our other partner groups have gotten cranky about it in the past.
