National Fisherman's 2012 Highliners and Lifetime Achievement Award Winner

Nowhere in the country is fishery management at a more critical intersection than on the East and Gulf coasts. Yes, that covers a lot of fishing ground, but these industry leaders — Kevin Wark of Barnegat Light, N.J., Dewey Hemilright of Kitty Hawk, N.C., and Wayne Werner of Alachua, Fla. — are making strides that have far-reaching consequences, well beyond the bounds of their fisheries.

I am also honored to present a lifetime achievement award to a man with a seemingly endless list of accomplishments, but you would never know it by talking to him. Lucky for us, those who have worked with Brian Rothschild understand the scope of his commitment to healthy and fairly managed fisheries. — Jessica Hathaway
