House passes menhaden cap


Del. Albert Pollard, D-Lancaster, gestures during debate on his bill putting a cap on menhaden fishing during the House session yesterday at the Capitol in Richmond.

The House of Delegates yesterday passed a bill to extend the cap on menhaden fishing–and keep control of the fish in legislative hands–despite some heated opposition.

The bill, from Del. Albert Pollard, D-Lancaster, extends to 2014 an existing cap (109,020 metric tons) on the number of menhaden that can be taken from the Virginia part of the Chesapeake Bay. – House passes menhaden cap
