    Sounds like they are shutting down mackerel and cod commercial fishing for the western Aleutian islands. They have no evidence that commercial fishing has anything to do with sea lion population declines, but the federal Endangered Species Act requires them to do something, even if they have no evidence of what to do. Since shutting down fishing is the only thing they can do in an area that has no other human interaction with the environment, they have to do that. Brilliant. Simply brilliant.
