Looks like Omega is going to add a 11th boat to there Menhaden fleet. Below is a snippet from a Washington Times article.

Another menhaden boat added -- The news has traveled up and down the Chesapeake Bay.
Virginia's commercial fishing fleet will grow by one vessel as a new menhaden season gets under way for the reduction fishing industry. The Omega Protein Company will add yet another netting boat to its 10-boat Chesapeake fleet.
Ready for a laugh? The Omega Company says adding an 11th vessel does not mean the company will catch more fish. Oh? It wasn't intended to provide sightseeing cruises, was it?
Conservation and sport fishing groups have warned for years that Omega's multimillion metric-ton removals of the oily baitfish are seriously depleting the Chesapeake of perhaps the most important link in the bay's food chain.

Omega demonstrates what they really care about here.

Instead of using that money to give their employees a raise, increase health care benefits, maybe give back to the town, etc - they decide to buy another boat to rape the bay in search of more profits.

I hope it's a junker and breaks down...
