      California's Offshore Revolution (MLF)

      James Workman, Journalist; Environmental Author; Former speechwriter for Interior Secretary Bruce Babbitt

      Eighty percent of global fisheries are at risk of collapse due to decades of over-fishing under the broken open-access, free-for-all, "race to the bottom" system. But Pacific Coast fishermen are leading a bold new rights-based approach to replenish both the sea and their bank accounts. This careful graduation to a "catch share" regulatory program, involving 74 species of fish, is resulting in higher revenues, reduction in wasteful discards, fresher product, and greater transparency. In an animated talk based on his forthcoming book, Workman will reveal the roots, essence, challenges and evolution of catch shares, tracing the seafood value chain from hook to cook and dock to plate.
