Doodlebugs to Windward Saving Fish and Fishing Communities

Rob talks about becoming an ocean steward with his cousins on a Cape Cod beach with KC Armstrong on WRNW1 K C After Dark. They talk about the vital work being done by the Ocean River Institute to save fish, fishing communities, and the ocean. KC asks why do bluefin tuna have more toxins per bite than other seafood.  Rob explains how we can save fish and fishing communities by eating more seafood.  It sounds counterintuitive.  However for politicians to do the heavy lifting of getting more federal funds to the Fishery Councils to research fish stocks they must know that their constituents care deeply for fish.  We can reduce our carbon footprint by switching meat sandwich for a fish sandwich (or lobster roll).  Help fishermen by buying the cheapest seafood, likely the most abundant and help build market for by-catch.
