"This is a desperate drop-in-the-bucket move to try to turn back the hands of time when people understand the suffering of captive orcas, and it will not save the company" PETA's director of animal law Jared Goodman told the LA Times . "A bigger prison is still a prison."
"Joe has been a longtime, tireless advocate for Vietnam veterans, nurses, as well as for animals and the environment," says the institute. "He performed at the recent Earth Day concert, 'Kiss the Sky -- Orca Freedom Concert,' which raised awareness and support for orca organizations, including Earth Island Institute's International Marine Mammal Project."

Michelle Bachman, an analyst with the New England Fishery Management Council, said, "Not only do conservationists and fishermen disagree, but some groups of fishermen stand to benefit while other groups could suffer, depending on the gear they use and the fish they catch."
