Marine and Coastal Fisheries AFS
Dr. Hilborn responded to critics of catch shares who claim that they destroy fishing communities by emphasizing that there are opportunities to combine community development with catch share programs. He also made the point that it is difficult to disentangle the effects of catch share systems with other outside forces that were going to affect fisheries and fishing communities.
Unfortunately, this talk came at the end of the day. I got the feeling that the group in the room could have discussed his comments into the night. It would have been very interesting to hear that discussion - one that those involved in sustainable marine fisheries will be a part of as we move forward.

There's forward progress in farming. one that's being used is large cages in the pelagic ocean rather than the more high density coastal pens. hawaiian moi is being farmed like that as are some salmon off the pacific northwest.
we really have no option but to go fwd and better manage the fish farms. wild populations cannot sustain the current fishing practices or catch quantities.
i just saw a sign in the window of whole foods th' other day. it seems chilean sea bass is off the danger list. how long d'you think before it's over fished again due to it's popularity?
