AOLA opposes new Atlantic Monument

AOLA strongly opposes President Obama’s declaration of a marine monument in the Atlantic Ocean. We find it deplorable that the government is kicking the domestic fishing fleet out of an area where they sustainably harvest healthy fish stocks.  Declaring a monument via Presidential fiat under unilateral authority of the Antiquities Act stands contrary to the principles of open government and transparency espoused by this President.
