Ayotte Continues to Fight Cod Quotas

fishingboatU.S. Senator Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) vowed on Wednesday to continue her fight for New Hampshire’s fishermen after the New England Fishery Management Council (NEFMC) announced dramatic reductions in cod quotas.
“This decision makes no sense, given the flexibility regulators have to allow for a second year of interim measures to address overfishing,” said Senator Ayotte, a member of the Senate Commerce Committee. “New Hampshire has a proud tradition of small boat fishing, which is an important part of our economy as well as our heritage. I’m also reintroducing the Saving Fishing Jobs Act, which would roll back these arbitrary regulations that are forcing our fishermen out of business.”
