Fishing

Late last week, we posted a cool infographic, courtesy of the journalists at Stateline, taking a look at the percentage of each state’s GDP that’s made up by federal spending.  The group then subdivided federal spending into defense-related spending and everything else.

 

Scientists and commercial fishermen are at odds over a new report on overfishing in the Gulf of Maine.

A National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration study gives a dire assessment of the health of the codfish population. 

At a meeting in Portsmouth, federal regulators met with fishermen to discuss the study that has yet to be peer reviewed. 

A Quest To Catch-m-All and Eat-m-All

Two New Hampshire men are on an unusual quest… to catch and eat every kind of freshwater fish in the state.

Except for the endangered ones, of course. So far, they’ve caught 35 of the 48 species of fish living in the state’s rivers, lakes, and streams.

Lots of people try to catch fish… and no doubt some anglers have tried to catch many different kinds…

But catching them all…and then eating them all? That’s something I had to see.

So I set out in a kayak along the Merrimack River with fishing buddies Clay Groves and Dave Kellem.
