The ballot box is the only effective answer to this issue!!! Vote out each and every state senator or delegate that does not support protecting the menhadden by eliminating the taking of those fish in the chesapeake bay.

Getaway -- would you vote for a candidate that was pro-menhaden, but anti-everything else you currently support? If someone is pro-life, do we really think they will support a pro-choice candidate to save the menhaden? I'd be curious how many folks are truly single-issue voters. This is where I think our elected officials have us over a barrel. Menhaden are unknown to most voters. Even if they were educated about the issue, most would say it doesn't effect them that much, schools, taxes, etc are far more important. And given our current state of intense political polarization, it's even more unlikely that many fishermen would cross party lines to fix the menhaden problem.
