In opposition to regulation of purse seine gear

I do not support this petition. It is of great concern that the petitioner and supporters feel the need to go to the length of filing a formal petition on something that is simply untrue. The menhaden purse seine industry has been villainized by these groups for decades. If half of the accusations that are made were true, this industry would not have 150 years of successful operation under its belt.
