  1. Nice lead on the article. I too am well aware of the ever deteriorating state of fisheries around the world, and try to include some of that in my blog. I’m putting together a post on alewives (with many photos) and their role in the wider ocean ecosystem. It’ll be on my front page soon, check it out.
