Protecting our national fish stocks from ruin by overfishing is a national imperative that requires both good management and solid science. NOAA, the agency responsible for managing our fisheries, is incapable of even adequate management, as shown by a recent independent review by Preston Pate.
At a 4/13/11 Senate subcommittee hearing (video from minute 98), Senator Ayotte of New Hampshire challenged NOAA Administrator Dr. Jane Lubchenco: “NOAA has been relying on ... incomplete and sometimes non-existent [fisheries] data.” Dr. Lubchenco responded with the expected evasion and the familiar patronizing talking point about “best available science information that we have.”
