Check out the last paragraph. “The freezer ship will have a capacity of 400 tons of fish a day caught at Georges Bank and the region south of Cape Cod, Steele said. Fishermen can target fish in parts of the Gulf of Maine, but those fish cannot be offloaded at sea, she said.” And who is going to be watching them to check on where the fish off -oaded to the big “mother” ship are coming from? This is a monster abuse situation just waiting to destroy our forage base along the entire Atlantic coast. And, “400 TON” capacity per day! www.seacoastonline.com/news/12062006/mainenews-ph-me-ship.html
