Even the casual visitor to many of our small Tidewater Virginia fishing communities will see signs of diminishing prosperity. A prosperous era has been succeeded by a period of lower economic and social levels.
What are the underlying causes of this declining trend? In facing this problem, so broad in its scope and so serious in its effect, the Virginia Fisheries Laboratory has, during the past year, effected an organization for analyzing conditions in our commercial fisheries and for disseminating facts about them and the need for their conservation.
