Gear Reform/ Menhaden fishery

It is heartbreaking to know that we have a current situation where there is inefficiency in protecting species of fish that are not targeted commercially and have little direct value to humans (yet some do) but HUGE implications to marine life, thus then directly impacting us and our marine resources. 

it is also heartbreaking that commercial fishing can be done with little to no damage to the ocean floor but is not currently being regulated to sustain our marine ecosystems and our marine life.
