The principles of fisheries management (such as ensuring long term biological and economic sustainability) are generally the same around the globe, but the path to achieving these goals differs among national and international management bodies.
Liese Carleton, PhD Candidate, Fisheries Science Virginia Institute of Marine Science
Liese Carleton is a PhD candidate at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science studying fisheries science, and has recently returned from spending a year working in Europe. While “across the pond”, Ms. Carleton supported producing catch advice for fish and crustacean stocks in the Northeast Atlantic, ranging from assisting with stock assessments to communicating the advice to managers and members of industry. Ms. Carleton will share her unique perspective on how fisheries management and policies differ between the US and Europe, and will discuss some case studies on interesting fisheries issues that occurred during 2019. This may include discussing the process of producing catch advice; European recreational fisheries; the full implementation of the discard ban in Europe; shifting fish distributions; the future of incorporating ecosystem information in stock assessments and advice; and more!
