As a commercial fisherman who does "Take pride in the ocean," and who works with your organization on issues such as Ocean Acidification, regional ocean planning and the implementation of the National Ocean Policy, I find the picture with this blog offensive at worst and misleading at best. Many will never get past that image, which implies that a single small scale fishing boat has led to the devastation of some part of the ocean. The blogs text has some good and useful information for people, so let's not disenfranchise a large part of the population that could be very helpful in restoring and maintaining the health of the ocean.
