Here's a letter from Sens. Lisa Murkowski and Mark Begich urging Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to work toward an international fishing ban in the central Arctic Ocean.
The letter notes the loss of ice and the possibility of exploratory or unregulated fisheries popping up in the Arctic high seas.
Further, it says we "have been here before" when a similar situation developed in the Bering Sea some decades ago.
Definitely worth reading.
