"New York's commercial fishing industry is a critical driver of our economy that has been held back by outdated federal restrictions for decades. The hardworking men and women of this industry deserve equitable treatment so they can succeed and grow their businesses and continue to boost their local economies.

"New York will continue to challenge this unfair quota and explore every avenue to ensure that New York's access to summer flounder is consistent with national standards and our state's fishing industry can continue to thrive."
