Overfishing led to job losses

July 19, 2009

Re: "A once-thriving industry awaits a blast of fresh air," July 11:

Although the main focus of the article concerned a proposed local freezing facility, it highlighted the tragic loss of jobs as a result of decades of massive over-exploitation of marine resources by commercial fishermen. If reasonable restricted harvests had been implemented in the past, California's fishermen would be enjoying bountiful harvests such as those of Alaska's properly managed fisheries.
