$120 million is earmarked for shrimp and Atlantic menhaden fishermen.

That's from a report from the Washington Post on MSNBC.
WP: War bill includes tempting projects - washingtonpost.com Highlights - MSNBC.com

I don't know if the funding is to subsidize companies like Omega for lost profit or to help them become more efficient. Regardless, I don't see why the funding is needed, especially in a War funding bill.

Glen Whathisname was ranting and raving about all the pork in the "Emergency Spending Bill" the other night on CNN. Millions for peanut storage in Georgia, millions for spinach growers, on and on. I think it was a total of 25 BILLION dollars added to the war funding bill for pork projects.
