I met Captain Dave Marciano at a listening session in Gloucester a few years ago. The issues were the transformation of the NE ground fishery on two fronts. Catch Shares and hard TAC’s. The future was bleak for many fishermen, and Dave was no exception. He had conclude that the best he could do for the welfare and future of his family, was to sell his permit and get out, instead of investing huge capital to stay in. He had taken his place at the podium and told us he had no choice, and I knew it was one of the toughest days of his life.
