Md. Anglers Sue Virginia For Menhaden Quota Increase

A group of anglers in Maryland has taken legal action against Virginia fishery managers for over-harvesting of menhaden in the Chesapeake Bay—a lucrative little fish for Omega Protein that is also a forage fish for larger Bay species.

On behalf of the Southern Maryland Recreation Fishing Organization, Chesapeake Legal Alliance filed a lawsuit against the Virginia Marine Resources Commission over the commission’s approval of a regulation to increase the state’s menhaden commercial fishing quota.

  1. I was out walking with my partner around yesterday enjoying the sunshine. There were multiple times where people passed us and I would wave, smile, nod, or say hello. Barely any person returned it – not even with a smile! One woman actually glared at me and quickly closed her gate.

    I moved from Baltimore a few months ago and was raised in the Boy Scouts. All my life neighbors would wave or say hello from across the street, even a simply friendly acknowledgment. Maybe it’s just me. Am I doing something wrong here.
