Bishop Statement on Re-opening the Northeast Canyons, Marine National Monument to Commercial Fishing


WASHINGTON, D.C., June 5, 2020 -

Today, Ranking Republican Rob Bishop (R-Utah) released the following statement regarding President Trump’s announcement to re-open the Northeast Canyons and Seamounts Marine National Monument to commercial fishing:

Today’s announcement by the President is yet another major shift in administrative policy to support America’s seafood industry and local economies. In June 2016, I spent the day in New Bedford, Massachusetts, meeting with dozens of industry representatives that focused on the economic impact that the then-pending marine monument designation would have on the local economy. Our conversation with industry lead to a compromise proposal that would both protect the environment and American jobs. Unfortunately, this compromise fell on deaf ears. I am grateful that President Trump has righted this injustice done to hard working Americans by the previous administration.”
