Northeastern Offshore Cod Fishery Making Comeback

Cod were thought to be overfished to extinction or damned near. Anglers off the NY coast are finding things not so bad.

Joe Reynolds wrote this story in the AHHerald in Monmouth, NJ - a place the curator is quite familiar with, having grown up till he was about 12 in NJ fishing for stripers and fluke in the wintertime and white perch and thick, little-mouth winter flounder and eel in the wintertime. All year long we fished for largemouth bass and beautiful, beautiful rainbow, brown, and brooke trout with what we thought were long rods till we got here and found out that flyrods were actually 8' and longer, not six feet toys like we brought here to try fishing with.

Cod

This story is about Cod - a fish that was thought to be nearly extinct from overfishing. Anglers in Northeastern waters are increasingly finding these tasty (maybe the tastiest) fish offshore. This is great news for the environment and for the people who want to harvest the fish in their local waters.

The whole story is here.
