LETTERS IN VIEW : That Wasn't Just Another Fish Story

May 10, 1990

Regarding "Catch-22: Must a Thriving San Diego Fishing Community Die So More Pacific Dolphins May Live?" (May 1): Why doesn't someone ask August Felando, head of the American Tunaboat Assn., what he and his family did before the advent of the dolphin-killing purse-seine netting (1967-'69)?

There is no reason the tuna fleet can't go back to long-line fishing--unless, of course, the purse-seine fishing has out-fished these areas closer to home than Africa.

No, a "thriving San Diego fishing community" need not die--just wake up to today's world and its problems, some of which it created.
