2021 Alaska Fisheries Science Center Groundfish Seminar Series - Jane DiCosimo, NMFS Office of Science and Technology (retired)
The power of participation and collaboration: An Alaska groundfish success story.
The Gulf of Alaska and Bering Sea support some of the largest and most valuable commercial fisheries in the world. The success of Alaska groundfish management is due to the foresight of US fishermen and government officials that led to the U.S. Congress adopting a federal law in 1976 that requires regional fishery management councils, along with their scientific experts, fishery stakeholders, council and agency staffs, and the public balance biological, economic, and social concerns to manage US fisheries for the greatest benefit to the Nation and in accordance with ten national standards.
