There is a post on the Virginia angler board stating that the BAN of industrial Menhaden catch in other Atantic states was supported by Scientific data. Does anyone there know if it was supported and driven by scientific data or did the recreationls just raise holy hell and put the pressure on the politicians ?

All I know is that when the Virginia anglers go out on the water and don't see any schools of menhaden with anything larger than 4" fish and few of those schools they will know why were complaining .

I have not seen a large school of menhaden in my cove for 8 years . We are fairly sure they are not getting up the Bay because of Omega netting them . Do you think we would be raising all this hell for nothing .

When it happens to your part of the Bay Virginians will be singing a different tune . Hope it never happens to you . It's a sad thing to ride your boat 15 miles this time of the year and not see 1 school of large menhaden . Tony
