A issue has been brought to our attention at Surfland. Got a call from a local fisherman stating that the National Park Service is planning on banning fishing at Derby Wharf. We are posting this so all of our followers that might also fish that area will know what is going on and maybe you can make it to the meeting to support this cause.
You can find them on Facebook under:
Save the Derby Wharf Fisherman
MONDAY SEPTEMBER 22
A meeting with recreational fisherman and their supporters and the Superintendent of the National Park Service in charge of Derby Wharf in Salem MA. He is proposing that fishing be banned there. People have fished there for generations – it’s not right. Bit by bit the fisherman are getting pushed out; commercial and recreational. It’s happening everywhere. It’s time to stand up on this issue.
