The story of overfishing is old by now. Commercial fishing of North Atlantic Cod , once a bedrock of New England’s economy, collapsed along with the fishery in the mid-1990s. The same story played out on the West Coast in 2008, when the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) declared a “ fishery failure ” for Chinook salmon.

Guided by regulations from the Magnuson-Stevens Act , the thought is that if enough fish are left in the water to reproduce, they can keep the species alive, and (hopefully) replenish numbers closer to the fisheries’ historic strength.
