July 31, 2011
Partner David E. Frulla was quoted in the Gloucester Times article entitled, "Fed Court Raps NOAA on Bycatch Programs." The article discussed a federal appeals court's decision to order the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to quantify bycatch in the Northeastern Atlantic fisheries and play a more active role in observing the work of commercial fishermen in designated regions. Mr. Frulla gave his insight, stating that, "NOAA needs to confront the observer issue head-on, and devise a solution that balances the need for good information with economic reality."
