On Tuesday night last week, I headed to a public scoping meeting held by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) in my hometown, Gloucester. NOAA was seeking input from Massachusetts residents about proposed fishing regulations to protect endangered North Atlantic right whales from extinction.
It was a full house — people had come from all over. Some were from the fishing and lobstering industries, others from environmental and conservation organizations, as well as people like me who came on their own to speak up for these whales that need to be protected from injury and death in Massachusetts waters.
This is why I spoke up: Today there are only 400 of these majestic whales left in the ocean — and in just the last two years almost 30 have been killed, largely because they become entangled in fishing and lobstering gear or have been struck by vessels.
Strong and effective measures are needed to ensure the survival of these whales while sustaining the fishing and lobstering industries. Because the North Atlantic right whale population is fast approaching a point of no return, it is important to remember: Extinction is forever.
Divers Market is proud to announce that Tom Fitzgerald is the latest member of the Master SCUBA Diver family. Tom has completed Open Water, Advanced Open Water, Rescue, and five specialties with 50 logged dives. This is the highest recreational certification that PADI offers. Congratulations, Tom!
According to PADI, "The Master Scuba Diver rating places you in an elite group of respected divers who have earned this rating through both significant experience and scuba training. Fewer than two percent of divers ever achieve this rating. When you flash your Master Scuba Diver card, people know that you’ve spent time underwater in a variety of environments and had your share of dive adventures."
