2018 Herring Observations

80 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

Herring are running strong  in the Falmouth and Mashpee runs.

If we want to see the runs full of Herring like the 80's we need to STOP THE DRAGGERS!!!!!

The by-catch DRAGGERS kill far exceeds what the fishermen use for bait.

DRAGGERS kill more as a by-catch in one weeks time than all the fishermen combined can kill all year.

STOP THE DRAGGERS! !!
