Letter: Fisherman's letters deserve answers

To the editor:

I believe that fisherman Paul Cohan is right on target every time I read something he has written in the Times (Letters, “Fishery time lines a recipe for failure,” Wednesday, Sept. 11).

He makes a lot of sense. However, it’s too bad that he — or we — can’t make NOAA listen to our pleas. And, I think, since they are paid from our tax money and have a job, why should they care about our fishermen?

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again — if they were on the boat instead of behind a desk, would it change their minds?

Our fishermen need help now — lost jobs, lost houses, and the list goes on and on.

Why can’t we get the whole truth and nothing but the truth from NOAA? Paul Cohan, never give up the fight.
