I do NOT support this petition

To randomly declare that a company's nets are destroying the grasses of the Chesapeake Bay is ridiculous and smacks of grabbing for straws. There is no scientific study to support this claim and in fact a recent VIMS study shows that the area of the Bay where the grasses are not thriving is located in Maryland, where Omega doesn't fish.

Unfortunately the folks behind these petitions and calls for closing the Bay to commercial fishing are not interested in facts. They are only interested in perpetuating a lie based on really nothing but their hatred of a company that they have no desire to learn the truth about.
