New England lawmakers are asking the U.S. Commerce Secretary for an emergency assessment of the abundance of cod in the Gulf of Maine.
The six lawmakers also are asking Bryson to freeze the cod catch limit at its current level until the study is complete. Fishermen are facing devastating cuts in cod catch next year

Personally, I make it a habit to assess my cod. But that’ just me.
Another segment of the private sector discovers that the "hope & change" they voted for painted a bull's eye on their chest.
Maine is coming to Massachusetts...
Back in the 1970s I use to really like the cheap batter fried fish at places like Long John Silvers etc.
I then went a long time without eating at any of them then maybe a year ago I was waiting to meet my Daughter’s family at a resort and on a whim stopped at one.
Maybe it was just a bad individual place but the fish sure seemed not as good. I recently saw an ad on TV for them and they mentioned the fish was pollock. That probably was what the difference was.
Pollock is OK, but cod is better.
In the meantime now the greenies have been stricken by the fear of (insufficient) cod. Since cod is pretty good, I wonder why not cod farming if anyone fears a cod shortage?
I recently bought some fake crab meat which was not really all that cheap, especially since it was made from pollock.
It was pretty good tho.
I love cod baked with a little butter lemon and garlic

Obama has killed fishing from Maine to Florida.
Red Snapper is under a complete closure in the southeast despite being at historically high levels of abundence. There was even testimony to a Congressional Hearing in July that the govt. scientist deliberatly reduced the biomass in the computer. They refuse to reopen it. Every other species is under severe unwarrented restrictions and top marine scientists are stating that our marine resources are in extremly good shape. We are importing 84% of the seafood consumed in the U.S. creating a re-distribution of wealth with the seafood trade deficit almost $11 billion.
On top of that, NOAA Administrator Jane Lubchenco (ex-EDF Vice Chair) has made implementing the Agenda 21 Catch Share system in all American fisheries a top priority. This has worked so well in the NE that most of the boats are tied to the dock and the Gov. of Mass. has declared an Economic Disaster and requested $21 million from the fedgov.
Undeterred by that she requested $54 million in the 2012 budget to continue expanding it.
As Maine goes, so goes the nation!
Exactly. And this type of job killing BS by the Obama administration needs to be hammered by Republicans on a daily basis. But it's not because they are too busy reacting to Democrat propaganda than actually getting their own message out.
Most of the Cod you eat actually comes from the Bering Sea. It’s pacific cousin isn’t as tasty in my opinion. A good Georges Bank alternative is Haddock. It’s a mid water column alternative to the bottom dweller Cod. It’s delicious!
I love haddock!
