The Future of Fisheries
New England's fisheries are facing collapse, and the debate over fishery policy is heating up. Will catch shares, catch limits, and federal regulation save the day - or drive fishing communities over the brink? Can smart legal and policy strategies reconcile business and conservation interests? How many fish really are in the sea? On Wednesday, April 24, come join YELA for a discussion on catch shares, catch limits, and the future of fisheries, featuring an all-star lineup of panelists from industry, academia, and the nonprofit sector. Panelists include Peter Shelley (Senior Counsel, Conservation Law Foundation), Professor Katrina Wyman (NYU Law), and fishing vessel captain Chris Brown (Brown Family Seafood). It promises to be a very lively discussion. Caseus grilled cheese and tomato soup will be served!
