BOSTON (CBS) – One week after U.S. Commerce Secretary Gary Locke denied a request from Governor Patrick to raise fish catch limits for Northeast fishermen, the controversy over catch limits is heating up.

Gloucester and New Bedford have filed a lawsuit against Locke and demanded an investigation into the practices of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

Late Thursday afternoon, more than 100 people (mostly fisherman) attended a meeting of New Bedford Mayor Scott Lang’s Ocean and Fisheries Council.
