Restoring the Ocean to Abundance: Ending Overfishing with Catch Shares

Featuring:

Dan Grossman, Regional Director, EDF Rocky Mountain Office
Diane Regas,
Vice President, EDF Oceans Program
Bill (Bubba) Cochrane, Fisherman

Decades of overfishing have emptied the ocean of fish — jeopardizing seafood supplies and the livelihoods of local fishing communities, and fundamentally altering the health of ocean ecosystems.  EDF has done pioneering work on an innovative market-based approach to managing fisheries called catch shares, which is yielding dramatic increases in fish populations, reductions in wasted fish, and more stable fishing jobs.

Join EDF’s vice president for oceans and one of the many fishermen we work with as they discuss the transformative change we’re accomplishing in U.S. waters — and how we’re beginning to spread the benefits of catch shares to Latin America and the Caribbean.
