Interstate regulators are considering altering the way they manage menhaden to better account for its role in the environment, with a key vote planned in November 2017. The fish, known also as pogies, are important for supplements and bait, and are vital for the ocean’s food web. (AP Photo/Robert F. Bukaty, File)
