Striped Bass and Dogfish

December 4th Episode:

This week’s show on Women’s Radio Network, hosted by K.C. Armstrong, is all about striped bass and dogfish (rock salmon). Striped bass numbers have been declining, but Rob Moir has been fighting to raise awareness and push changes in legislation to their benefit. Overfishing and pollution, leading to a loss of habitat, have caused these critters to suffer, but a change to the Magnunson-Stevens Fisheries Act to increase funding for fish research would work in their benefit. Additionally, Rob says, that by eating the most abundant fish, which is currently dogfish, you are helping to protect the overfished fish stocks. Stay informed and help the oceans!
