The Rhode Island Quahog Research Fleet and Ship of Bumbling Fools
Out of all the absurd Rhode Island fisheries management schemes I have witnessed over the forty or so years I was worked on the concept of a Quahog Research Fleet by the academics is by fa the most outlandish and infantile. The amount and extent of the quahog resource in Narragansett Bay is incalculable for many, many reasons.
For the record, Jim Russo and Free and Common is saying-“PLEASE STOP THE MADNESS!!! When futile attempts to justify the research community existence reaches this level of insanity, and lack of critical thinking, it’s time to give up the self serving agendas (get me some money) and make the main goal and objective of managing Narragansett Bay for the people of the state and not bought in special interests (the wolves are guarding the hen-house) with the main objective being PEACE THROUGH PROSPERITY FOR ALL!
