Commercial Fishing to Resume in the Northeast Canyons and Seamounts Marine National Monument

On Friday 5/06/2020 the US Government announced that it will reopen the Northeast Canyons and Seamounts Marine National Monument to commercial fishing.

The move was criticized by marine life advocates who said it could threaten species in the area but praised by fishing groups that said it would generate millions of dollars for their industry.

The monument, about 130 miles from Cape Cod, Mass., was established in 2016 by then-President Obama to protect deep-sea environments and marine life.
