9th Circuit Upholds Fish Trawling Rules
By TIM HULL
(CN) - Over the objections of hook-and-line anglers, the 9th Circuit on Monday upheld a quota system meant to increase the efficiency and sustainability of the Pacific groundfish fishery.

Jim Murphy, the manager of the Cooke Hatchery in St. Alban’s is in heaven.
Murphy has worked in several hatcheries in British Columbia and Alaska but none of them compare to Cooke’s state-of-the-art recirculation facility. Murphy said, “Comparing the other hatcheries I worked in to this one is like comparing night and day.
