An insightful commentary by fishing Captain Jerry Leeman and a passionate video that accompanied it has drawn much reaction and criticism, especially on The Light’s Facebook feed.
Leeman described the hardships of commercial fishing due to government regulations, laying it out in simple terms: “I’m not a fortune teller; I’m just a fisherman. I have no vested interest, other than it’s a job. My job employs thousands, and that keeps those lives turning. When the last fish is landed, it’s all over.”
