How to use "Menhaden" in context?
The Atlantic menhaden is a large, oily fish that is important to the economy of many coastal states. In 2006, the Atlantic menhaden fishery achieved its historic peak volume and value, supplying nearly $350 million in total value to the U.S. seafood market. In response to the overfishing of many other species, commercial and recreational fisheries in the northeast Atlantic have been closed since the early 1990s, resulting in drastic reductions in the population of Atlantic menhaden. The Atlantic menhaden is a primary prey item for the striped bass, a sought-after sportfish that is also affected by overfishing.
