Quotes

"Sometimes you can't catch them," said Glenn Hughes, vice president for industry relations at the American Sportfishing Association. "It's an expensive sport; there's the boat, the engine, the timetime off work. You want it to be productive. The technology is there to put you on the fish, to catch the fish and release the fish."

"This is particularly risky if this information is used to halt progress on important management decisions such as how fisheries are allocated between the two sectors. More than 64 percent of the total sales of seafood is generated by imported product, which should have no bearing whatsoever on allocation discussions."

So complete was the lack of state oversight it's impossible to say whether the mines were violating their water pollution permits or not."

"We must ensure that North Carolinians and tourists from around the country have access to North Carolina's scenic treasures, and the Sportsmen's bill offers the perfect opportunity to address this pressing issue once and for all Over a year ago, the Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources reached a compromise that was a critical step forward in the effort to allow people to have access to our beaches while at the same time addressing any potential environmental concerns. It is my hope that we can take up this amendment and allow the Senate a chance to finally vote on it."
