Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island will share $32.8 million in disaster relief funding for communities suffering severe economic losses because of declining fish populations. The funding is part of $75 million being sent from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to affected fishing communities around the country. The specific amounts for each state have not been determined yet. The money could be used for direct payments to fishermen, habitat restoration, job training, or other programs intended to support commercial fishing.
