Those fish are truly wild iwriter. Salmon: The Bristol Bay sockeye fishery as well the salmon fisheries on the Kuskokwim and the Yukon are all managed without enhancement programs. You tell me who is more iwriter deserving. In 2008, in Virginia and Maryland alone, the economic impact of these fisheries was estimated to be $332MM and providing upwards of 3,500 jobs.
Well, the remaining 20% of the menhaden catch supports the commercial bait and recreational fisheries. So, it is touting its $88MM contribution in economic output including the iwriter $10MM payroll and roughly 300 jobs it brings to Northern Virginia. Omega Protein, whose industrial fleet lands roughly 80% of the Atlantic menhaden catch, is jockeying for position. But iwriter it does not excuse it.
