NWFSC Monster Seminar Jam: Joshua Stoll
This seminar is part of the Northwest Fisheries Science Center's Monster Seminar Jam series.
Joshua Stoll (University of Maine) is presenting a talk, "Characterizing small-scale marine fisheries in the United States."
Small-scale fisheries represent an important segment of the seafood economy, making valuable contributions to health and nutrition, employment, and community well-being. However, small-scale fisheries are not well characterized in the United States or around the world thereby making them difficult to integrate into decision-making processes. To make this sector more "visible" we assemble data on small-scale fisheries in the United States, provide estimates of their socioeconomic contributions, and identify key drivers of change. This presentation will highlight these findings and describe an initiative to strengthen the network of small-scale fisheries in the United States and elevate their role in local and regional food systems.
Joshua is an Assistant Professor of Marine Policy in the School of Marine Sciences at the University of Maine. His research focuses on questions about coastal community resilience, ocean governance, and fisheries policy and seeks to contribute to the sustainability of our oceans and the communities that depend upon them. He holds a B.A. in Environmental Studies from Bates College, a Masters in Coastal Environmental Management from Duke University, and a PhD in Ecology and Environmental Sciences from the University of Maine. Prior to returning to Maine to join the faculty, he was an early career research fellow in the Global Economic Dynamics and the Biosphere Program at the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences in Sweden.
