Photos from: Fishery Managers Scale Back Sardine Harvest

A crew hauls in a Pacific sardine net to stack on deck. In a tight 7-6 vote, the Pacific Fishery Management Council opted to set the sardine fishery quota for the first half of 2014 at far less than what current management guidelines would allow. Environmental groups hailed the decision, while fishermen and fishing associations called it a political capitulation that ignores scientific reality. Council members will review the decision in April 2014. Photo courtesy of the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife.
