Maine fishermen call new tuna rules unfair

Maine’s bluefin tuna fishermen are expected to show up in force to protest new federal quotas on the fishery at a public hearing in Portland April 25.
The hearing, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Holiday Inn by the Bay at 88 Spring St., is seeking comments on the most stringent catch limits the National Marine Fisheries Service has ever proposed for the large fish. The season opens June 1.
