"In a landmark development for ensuring a healthy Pacific Ocean, fishery managers this week unanimously approved their first Fishery Ecosystem Plan for the West Coast.

The Pacific Fishery Management Council plan makes it a priority to protect currently unmanaged forage fish. The plan, in the works since 2009, begins a fundamental shift in the Pacific councilís approach to fisheries management and represents an important milestone in U.S. efforts to move ecosystem-based management from theory into practice.

Sounds like a plan. We have a long way to go in cleaning up our fishing industry and this may not be enough.
