In the "old days" coal miners would carry a "Canary" into the mines with them in a cage. If the canary stopped singing, the miners would know that the bird had perished from the invisible, odorless, lethal, Methane gas, and would evacuate the mine!
The NC Sea Turtles are the "Canary in the Coal Mine" for NC marine fisheries!!!
You need to look no further than the Division of Marine Fisheries own website to confirm this. See how the rest of our "fish stocks" are faring here.........
It is time to "evacuate" ourselves from a politically run marine fisheries system here in NC!
Far too long have a handful of coastal politicians stood guard over a mismanaged and corrupt marine fisheries system for the sake of money. Our coastal resources have been sacrificed on the altar of convenience and status-quo for monetary and political gain!
Yes, our Canary in the Coal Mine is dead. Where is the nearest exit?
