Annual NOAA report shows ‘steady progress’ toward rebuilding fisheries


By Dan Bacher

From IndyBay Media – Thursday, July 14, 2011

Coalition response...This author trumpets NOAA’s report that fish populations are rebounding following reduced fishing programs. Yet when the fishing restrictions of recent years were announced by federal fish agencies, he and other fishing interests screamed against the action...and now he is holding up a report that justifies the action?

Although he sometimes poses as a friend to environmental concerns over declining fisheries when it suits his ideological purposes, the fact is that Dan Bacher’s number-one priority is fishing, which is an effective means of killing fish. Ironically, the NOAA report said that 40 fish stocks are overfished and among them are some of the species that Bacher flaunts on his commercialized fishing web site.

It is also ironic that this author is quick to recognize a qualifier in the NOAA report that suggests other factors beyond fishing may impact fish populations that are characterized as “overfished.” But in a 2010 report by the National Academy of Sciences on the Delta and the biological opinions that cited fish salvage at the Delta pumps, Bacher ignored the NAS “qualifier” that other predation factors need to be studied to achieve a complete understanding of the predation issue.
