Something stinks

It’s a real problem: New England fishermen are being regulated to death. The restrictions on when, where, and how they can work began piling up in the mid 1990s, when overfishing had reduced many stocks to critically low levels, and the government set species-by-species recovery targets. The results of those recovery programs are mixed at best. But for fishermen, and potentially for the region’s maritime heritage, the status quo may threaten disaster.
