Looks like the New England Council finally did the right thing

A fisheries expert and friend says, and i agree:

It took them 40 years—or just a little over 16, if you start counting when
the Sustainable Fisheries Act was passed—but they have finally, and for the
first time, voted for a biologically supportable cod limit.
Of course, if they started doing this two or three decades ago, instead of spending all of their time trying to evade the intent and spirit of the law, perhaps the cut could have been a little smaller… http://www.gloucestertimes.com/topstories/x1525009790/Cod-limits-set-at-77-cut
