Disaster declaration issued for several U.S. fisheries

Acting U.S. Secretary of Commerce Rebecca Blank today declared a commercial fishery failure for several locations in the United States. The disaster declarations makes it possible for Congress to appropriate money toward alleviating the financial hardship of fishermen affected by the fishery failures. If money is appropriated, NOAA will work closely with Congress and the governors representing the affected states to develop plans to assist coastal communities.
