Zinke Wants To Open Atlantic Marine Monument To Commercial Fishing

The Trump administration could harm the Northeast Canyons and Seamounts Marine National Monument, a protected area of the Atlantic Ocean about 130 miles southeast of Cape Cod, Mass., by allowing commercial fishing.

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke has recommended that commercial fishing resume in the 4,913-square-mile Atlantic Ocean monument, home to the endangered sperm whale and 9-foot-tall cold-water corals, and two protected areas in the Pacific Ocean.
