Guam - A Draft Environmental Impact Statement briefing was held this morning with the Legislative Natural Resources Committee. The hearing provided an opportunity for officials with the Guam Fishermen's Co-Op, the Guam Organization of Saltwater and Anglers, the Guam Farmer's Co-Op and the Department of Agriculture to voice the concerns they have with the plans in the DEIS.

Fisherman's Co-Op President Manny Duenas expressed his disappointment with the military's plans to use the eastern side of the island for their firing range.  "How you going to tell fishermen to keep out of that zone when fishermen go to the eastern side of the island, that's a safety issue. So that means that zone either has to be constantly closed and prohibited access or somebody's going to have to stand out there with a military boat to tell the fishermen you can't pass through or you can't fish in this zone, we're operating," he said.
