Where did all the Menhaden go?

Wow!  Check out this article by Alison Fairbrother of the Washington Monthly. 

A Fish Story

Ms. Fairbrother does a really excellent job first outlining the downfall of menhaden and then gets into the research being done to assess their stocks and what is being done politically to try to return the numbers back where they should be.  This is an important issue not just for saltwater fisherman, but also people who wish to see a healthy ecosystem in place.  Definitely worth the time to read!
