Fish for Tomorrow Part 2.
Advocate Rick Marks discusses "The Magnuson Stevens Act" and the Executive Director of Viking Village, Ernie Panacek speaks about the success stories of the fishing industry.
"The Miracle at Sea-SCALLOPS" is brought to the forefront because of the rebound of this bivalve. An in-depth study and the cooperation of the fishing industry has helped the North Atlantic "Wild" Scallop attain great populations throughout the mid Atlantic region of the ocean. Interesting how the scientists came up with rotational harvesting grounds, increasing the ring size of the scallop tow, number of days out at sea and the decrease of the crew size. All these factors proved to be valuable in the success of the scallop industry.
