The article is wrong; they are as far west the San Francisco Bay brought from the Chesapeake by rail cars! In lots of reservoirs too. Maybe make it a game fish nationally too?! Good momentum!

I dont think it would have much affect on whether or not the fish is designated a game fish only in each state since states will decide that individually. (president Bush declared striped bass a game-fish only in federal waters but fed waters are closed to recs too.) I dont think it does much but honor a fish that is vital to Maryland. If it does anything as far as management goes, it may put a little more pressure on ASMFC to manage more for abundance, which isnt a bad thing.

Perhaps we should attempt to designate menhaden as the National Fish. After all, if published reports are to believed, it is "The Most Important Fish in the Sea."
