Cordell Bank Sanctuary Advisory Council Urges Denial of Pending West Coast Swordfish Permit

The Cordell Bank National Marine Sanctuary Advisory Council (SAC) unanimously adopted a resolution  urging National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) and the Secretary of Commerce to deny a pending swordfish fishing permit proposed for the California coast. The permit must be issued by year’s end or expire. The Gulf of the Farallones SAC is considering a similar resolution. The Monterey Bay SAC has not taken up the issue. The story was covered by the West Marin Report of KWMR community radio in Point Reyes.
