“New Hampshire’s fishing industry has suffered devastating losses due to declining fish populations and strict federal regulations, and I’m glad the federal government is providing much-needed assistance for this vital New Hampshire industry. We must ensure our fisheries have the resources they need to recover and thrive, and I urge NOAA to release all remaining disaster-assistance funds to New Hampshire, so we can continue to support the economic success of Granite State fishermen.”
