Fishermen from Maryland and Virginia were among the thousands who rallied on Capitol Hill to protest rules they say are threatening their livelihood.

Virginia Eastern Shore fisherman Darryl Lilliston says Congress must ease fishing restrictions or folks like him will go out of business.

"We are going to be gone," he says. "We are already two-thirds extinct and failing every day."
