“By conservative estimates, as much as 140 million pounds or more of bycatch are harvested and destroyed by these menhaden harvesters annually,” Macaluso says. That includes both vital forage species and prime game fish that support the state’s recreational-fishing industry.

“Seeing hundreds and sometimes thousands of large, breeding-size redfish killed in pogy nets along the beaches where they’re eating and spawning every summer and fall is gut-wrenching,” adds Macaluso, a lifelong Louisiana resident and angling enthusiast.

Chris Macaluso definitely knows the scene in coastal Louisiana.

Money talks, sadly, and until conservationists force the regulators to say enough to Omega and other factory machines, the sea will continue to be strip-mined.
