National Fisherman's 2011 Highliners

No one who navigates the complicated web of U.S. fishery management would discount the value of being an innovative thinker and a man (or woman) of action.

Every year, we stretch the traditional definition of a highliner to honor three people who not only make a splash in their day job of fishing but also strive to give back to their local fishing community, the national commercial community, or both.

These criteria made it easy to select our 2011 Highliners. Larry Collins of San Francisco; Dan Falvey of Sitka, Alaska; and Bill Webber Jr. of Cordova, Alaska, are bona fide innovators and men of action, each in his own way.
