Future-proofing New England’s fisheries

New England fisheries are changing. The fleet and its captains are aging; regulatory change is occurring at ever-smaller intervals; and to top it all off, the ocean ecosystem is experiencing dramatic changes in temperature, timing of migrations, and location of fish stocks. Are our fisheries built to last in an era of environmental change? Join New England fishermen from different gear types who are working to figure out answers to this question through a statewide stakeholder co-learning process. Panel members will engage the audience in discussing current threats to the resilience of their industry and potential strategies to enhance its adaptive capacity. More information about this co-learning network can be found at www.ResilientFisheriesRI.org
