Can you still go to any dock and jig for herring as my son did as a child for his grandfather to pickle? Where do these herring come from? Are they the same ones they fish out of Chili and other places along the way? Not only do we catch them but they are eaten in masses by whales, seal, salmon, birds, even the hermit crabs take a toll on the eggs.
In my opinion it's time to
take the politics out of the decision making of the fisheries,
if we kill the herring we ALL die, plain and simple. Thank you
for allowing me to state my opinion.
