Marblehead, Mass. Bans Dock Fishing

dock sail boatsThose damn outsiders, many of them Cambodians, are tying up the local docks fishing in Marblehead, Mass. So the city council placed a ban on all fishing off the docks/pier. Judging by the boats/houses in the background and those in the foreground, the decision making is not hard to figure out. Populations density, over harvesting, safe access, littering, parking all factor into this I am sure.

“Harbormaster Webb Russell explains that the docks were being crowded by people from outside of Marblehead. In fact, according to the CBS Boston report, many of the people in the above photos are from the Cambodian community.

“It was a little bit out of control,” Russell said. “The volume of people fishing down the gangway here, side-by-side.”

But, again, some Marblehead residents are unhappy with the decision.

“Several of my friends who grew up in this town since the age of 4 say they feel disgusted by the situation,” said Marblehead resident Michael Bourne.

“The result is, there are no Cambodians who are going to be fishing here as long as this ban is in place,” he added. “Whatever your heritage you should be allowed to gather in this town.”
