Where Are The Fish Going?
Cod is still one of the most important fish in the Atlantic...and a new survey of its population has fishermen worried.

Fishermen, in places like Gloucester and New Bedford Massachusetts, say they see things differently - and they question whether NOAA has overstepped its authority.
