A bill to shift management of a small but important Chesapeake Bay fish from the Virginia General Assembly to a state regulatory agency died in committee on Monday.

The legislation was the final of several proposals to regulate a menhaden fishery that once operated from Maine to Florida but is now reduced to one commercial fleet: Omega Protein Inc. in Reedville. North Carolina still has the remnants of a small menhaden fishery
