National Fisherman's 2010 Highliners
Our industry may be facing challenges, but it's not for a lack of dedicated leaders. This year's Highliners demonstrate dedication to viable management in the most challenging regulatory environment U.S. fishermen have seen.
Maryland's Bob Evans has worked every level of government — and just about everywhere else — on behalf of fishermen and their communities.
With five boats, Mainer Jim Odlin is a one-man employment agency. He's also a member of the New England council who does not shrink from the future, as scary as it sometimes seems.
Rhode Islander David Spencer harbors no illusions about the difficulty of developing equitable fisheries management. And when his understated leadership yields progress, he is quick to credit to others. Most everyone else, however, seems to credit him.
Congratulations to National Fisherman's 2010 Highliners. — Jerry Fraser
