The Center for Sustainable Fisheries and National Fisherman magazine are co-sponsoring a series of nationwide public workshops at which we will discuss revisions to the Magnuson-Stevens Act. Can we rewrite the act in order to strengthen the economic component of fisheries management, give more flexibility to the councils and facilitate better science? Join us in the discussion, coming to a workshop near you this spring.
