Current Developments on U.S. Fisheries Policy

January 25, 2018 11:30 am — 12:45 pm
Webinar only

An ELI Ocean Program Seminar

The Trump Administration’s approach to fisheries management seems to constitute a significant policymaking shift. Recent decisions such as extending the Gulf of Mexico season for red snapper or overturning a decision by the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission that would have cut New Jersey's recreational quota for summer flounder seem to go against NOAA’s traditional approach of situating scientific information at the center of fisheries decision-making. This webinar discussed these and other recent developments and assessed the direction U.S. fisheries policymaking may take in the future.
