Comments from oyster fishermen who, when asked, “In which of the following areas do you do MOST of your fishing activity?” answered,

Federal Offshore Waters

At the rate of dock loss to oil and gas there aren't going to be any fisheries left. The control structures in the marshes are strangling the fisheries.

Look at maps from 15-20 years ago [to see the harmful effects of current diversions]. Past the double pipeline [you see] minimal change. Inside [where Caernarvon’s freshwater outflow goes], the marsh is gone. The only difference was the Caernarvon Syphon [diversion].
