Medhaden Defenders.org is a group dedicated to limiting commercial harvesting of the popular baitfish, aka bunker.
The organization says "...the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission has never implemented regulations to protect spawning medhaden from the industrial Chesapeake Bay-based company known as Omega Protein, which turns the fish into meal and oil, shipping most of it overseas.
"The medhaden population is in trouble," says the group.
