Have You Given Up Trying To Make Sense Of Local Fisheries News?

    Mr Gaines has done a consistent job of keeping GDT readers up to date, but no one's done a good timeline-style account going back to the passing of the 200-mile limit; that marked the beginning of the end for small boat fishing here. The dire statements and drastic actions of environmental groups didn't come out of nowhere, but there's a real feeling of our local fishermen fighting for their lives now, and no real certainty about the science that's driving the decisions that have put them into that struggle.
    That's why I feel like it's a story that's lengthy, unwieldy and tough to get a clear picture of all the conflicting elements --good luck to anyone trying to make sense of it.
