New England regulators approve steep fish cuts
By JAY LINDSAY
PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (AP) -- New England's fishing regulators have approved massive cuts in cod catch limits that fishermen say will trigger the collapse of the industry.
The New England Fishery Management Council on Wednesday approved a year-to-year cut of 77 percent on the Gulf of Maine cod limit and 61 percent for Georges Bank cod.
Fishermen who chase bottom-dwelling groundfish say that allots far too few fish to make a living.
The Northeast's top federal fisheries regulator, John Bullard, acknowledged that the cuts will be devastating. He said stocks are in perilous condition and the cuts are needed to help stocks rebound and preserve any future for groundfishermen.
Fishermen, though, said Wednesday that the science behind the cuts is deeply flawed and shouldn't be used to justify such devastating cuts.

KINGFISHER, Okla. (AP) -- Authorities continue to search for a Kingfisher teenager who disappeared after jumping into Uncle John Creek.
Police say 17-year-old Taylor Faine jumped into the creek Thursday and did not resurface. Kingfisher Fire Chief Randy Poindexter told The Oklahoman (http://bit.ly/10s2oB6 ) on Saturday that manmade dams have been built in hopes of finding Faine's body.
Authorities say Faine was swimming with friends in an area where no swimming signs are in place because of dangerous currents in the creek.
