River Herring Protected

River herring and shad in the Atlantic Ocean will now be federally protected.  River herring by catch in commercial mid water trawlers has been viewed as a significant impediment to the recovery of river herring stocks, this ruling potentially addresses the issue.  River herring being a key link in oceanic food webs being used as one justification for this ruling is also pretty significant.  Read the article its pretty enlightening.
