Over at ESPN Outdoors, Robert Montgomery writes that the administration "will accept no more public input for a federal strategy that could prohibit U.S. citizens from fishing the nation's oceans, coastal areas, Great Lakes, and even inland waters."
That might be someting of a stretch. The task force hasn't said it will target sport fishing, but, Montgomery says, it hasn't explicitly said it won't, either. "The task force has shown no overt dislike of recreational angling, but its indifference to the economic, social and biological value of the sport has been deafening," he writes.
Burning Question is a recurring feature that looks at key issues and compelling stories being explored at other publications and social media sites covering the federal government.
