NH joins fishing limits lawsuit against Commerce secretary
Hassan and New Hampshire Attorney General Joseph Foster announced the decision to intervene Monday. The original lawsuit was filed in May.
As a result, New Hampshire’s commercial ground fishing fleet was reduced to 14 boats this season, New Hampshire ground fishing sector manager Joshua Weirsma said on Monday — down from 24 last year.
The lawsuit claims that in addition to threatening the extinction of the ground fishing industry, the new frameworks are in violation of the national Magnuson-Stevens act governing fishing regulations nationally.
New Hampshire’s Congressional delegation has also spoken out in support of the industry.
