Regulations crippling commercial fishing industry

A Life at Sea/A Life at Risk, a six-part series by The Press of Atlantic City (N.J.), examined the crushing impact of federal and state fishing regulations on New Jersey's $1 billion a year commercial fishing industry.  "The regulations use size limits, gear restrictions, seasons, quotas and other methods to reduce the catch. A new round of regulations is coming and the Department of Labor predicts they will be a factor in reducing fishing jobs by 16 percent over the next seven years."
