Fisheries Project Director, Coastal Enterprises, Inc.

‘As the utilization of our oceans increase, the past present and future uses of that space should be considered. The land/sea interface is one of the many areas where thoughtful ocean planning can have significant terrestrial and ocean implications in perpetuity.

 

As the world population continues to grow so do the pressures and challenges on our nation’s coasts. Commercial fisheries are an integral part of our culture and heritage and serve an important role in feeding people. We must also think about the future and specifically where our food will come from. Aquaculture conducted in a sustainable manner can provide domestic fish protein and help alleviate the increasing pressures on our wild stocks.

 

By investing in an innovative, responsible and thoughtful marine economy, we can assure there will be resources for generations to come.’
