MA to Offer Loans to Fishermen

The Patrick-Murray Administration announced [January 31] that Massachusetts is creating a new Commercial Fisheries Revolving Loan Fund (RLF)—the first of its kind in New England—designed to help bridge the gap for commercial fishermen as they transition to the new sector management program for groundfish.

Well, that's a good idea but it may be too late.

Before Jane Lubchenko quit NMFS she and the PEW foundation rammed through individual fishing shares that are in the process of wiping out all the small boat fishermen. Unless congress puts and end to that fiasco there will be a lot fewer fishermen but they will be using
super boats to destroy the resource.
