Join us for a discussion on upgrading power systems for America's commercial fishing vessels through the Diesel Emissions Reduction Act, hosted by Brett Veerhusen of Ocean Strategies, with Ezra Finkin of the Diesel Technology Forum.

The Diesel Emissions Reduction Act replaces older diesel engines with those fitting higher standards. Since 2008, fleets at marine and inland ports have been a priority for funding, with $93 million going to ports projects from 2008-13. This session explores how industry partnerships and federal funds can support an ongoing effort to upgrade power systems for America's commercial fishing vessels, and ensure a responsible seafood economy through collaboration with Tribes, fishing communities, fishing associations, and engine manufacturers.
