One thought on “Fisheries innovations credited with West Coast groundfish recovery

  1. Great article, but I wonder why you left out the major driver of change in the groundfish fishery? I was a plaintiff in a series of lawsuits during 2001 that forced managers to obey the law and reduce fishing. These restrictions were resisted by the fishing industry. The innovations came about after court-ordered fishing restrictions, and they were a way to cope with the court-ordered changes. Without the court orders, I doubt we’d be celebrating recovery today. Here’s a link to an article that describes one lawsuit: https://www.nrdc.org/media/2002/020416
