Here's How Broadwater Will Damage Lobster Fishing

The National Marine Fisheries Service said in January that one of the problems with the environmental impact statement FERC prepared for the Broadwater LNG terminal is that it neglected to analyze how the huge facility would damage fishermen who use that part of Long Island Sound (and I should add that NMFS pointed out only one of many problems with the EIS).

I’m sure NMFS wants to see hard economic data, but there’s also a human side to the issue, and the Long Island Business News has a terrific story by a reporter named Ross Daly that explores what Broadwater will mean to Long Island lobstermen from Mount Sinai Harbor east. It should be appended to the environmental impact statement.
