Speaker: Brad Pettinger, Commercial Fisherman & PFMC Council Member Pacific Fishery Management Council
Topic: An industry perspective on West Coast groundfish or how I stopped worrying and learned to love Stock Synthesis
The relationship between the West Coast fishing industry and the fisheries scientific community has historically been a contentious one. This tumultuous relationship over the last 30+ years is explored through an industry perspective on the groundfish fishery’s boom, bust and rebirth. Pettinger gives his take on what went wrong, what went right and why the fishery’s promising future is more fragile than we might think.
