Del. Stuart, appointed to the ASFC menhaden commission in 2011, announces today that his 6 year study is now complete. Due to over fishing by the Virginia Bait Industry the menhaden population has dropped to unsustainable levels. Del. Stuart remarks were made at the Omega Protein factory in Reedville where the delegate was presented with a gold Rolex watch for a job well done. Omega Protein has announced the closing of their facility but vow to return to Virginia once the menhaden population rebounds.

It is obviously meant to be humorous. Del Stuart is the problem and the reason that the legislation has not been changed. It seems that he is behind each failed bill. Of course, the other politicians who bent to his backroom threats and bribes were likely just using the bill proposals as political markers to get something that they wanted.
