Family takes action to help rebuild Lynnhaven Fishing Pier in Virginia Beach

 

The November Nor’easter in 2009 showed no mercy for the man-made Lynnhaven Fishing Pier.
"My father and four partners built it in 1956," said Barbara Duff, owner of the Lynnhaven Fishing Pier.
Barbara and Hoyt Duff are determined to rebuild what nature took away. The storm damage to the pier is extensive and huge portions were wiped out.
"So we can use all the help we can get," Barbara said.
It will take money the Duffs don’t have to return the tattered pier to its historic splendor.
"My goal is to borrow as little as possible and pay it back as quick as possible," said Hoyt Duff, co-owner of the Lynnhaven Pier.

Talking about More than technology needed to help keep poachers at bay

  Poaching — a long-overlooked criminal activity given a pass by the legislative, judicial and executive branches of government — is finally getting the attention it deserves.

Judges and prosecutors are taking cases seriously. The General Assembly is enacting tougher penalties so that bandits convicted of stealing fish, crabs and oysters cannot continue to consider fines simply a cost of doing business.

Talking about Mass. Weighs Commercial Striped Bass Fishing Ban – ABC News

 

The feisty and enormously popular striped bass would be off limits to all commercial fishermen in Massachusetts under a proposal being considered by state lawmakers.

The bill would ban the commercial catch of striped bass in state waters and limit recreational fishermen to taking home one striped bass per day — down from two — while imposing new size restrictions.

Army Corps, Virginia Beach Partners Recognized for Environmental Efforts and Oyster Restoration

 

The Army Corps of Engineers Lynnhaven Oyster Restoration Project Team received the 2009 Coastal American Partnership Award Jan. 14 for their efforts to restore a 60-acre network of oyster reefs in the Lynnhaven River.
These are permanent sanctuaries – free from fishing – creating the second largest such network in the world. This network functions as a Marine Protected Area benefiting the ecosystem with increased oyster larval production throughout the river, improved juvenile fish habitat, and better water quality. The team will continue to collaborate between federal, state, local governments, academia and local non-profit organizations to expand the sanctuary to an additional 40 acres.
