Doing the Math
National Fisherman
September 2015

Partner David Frulla and associate Anne Hawkins co-authored the National Fisherman article “Doing the Math.” The article covers a vote by the New England Fishery Management Council to address essential fish habitat protection in the Gulf of Maine. In contrast to the 1,965 square miles on Georges Bank specifically managed for habitat now under “no action,” the habitat amendment would specifically manage approximately 2,470 square miles for habitat. David and Anne provide the background of the decision and break down the details of the amendment.
