This San Francisco Chronicle Article details how the Fish and Game Commision bowed to political pressure from the commercial fishing industry and opened the herring fishery against the advice of department biologists.

This is a quote from the article:
"After protests from the fishing industry, the state Fish and Game Commission in August rejected the biologists' arguments, deciding to allow a curtailed herring season while cutting the fleet's quota to about 2,200 tons, roughly equal to last season's catch"
