Fisheries in the United States are valued at over $200 billion and employ an estimated 1.7 million people. With the Magnuson-Stevens Fisheries Conservation and Management Act (MSA) slated for re-authorization in the next couple years, fishermen, conservation groups, and other interested parties have an opportunity to reflect on the state of fisheries in the country and debate their vision for the future. In this talk, Dr. Stoll will use the reauthorization of MSA as a taking off point to ask the question: is fisheries management achieving its goal? He will also discuss “fish as food” and the rise and proliferation of alternative seafood networks in North America.
