Where the Foulies Hit the Road in Fisheries Conservation

Noah Oppenheim ’10 grew up in Maine, became SCUBA certified at 15, and has stayed salty ever since. He’s worked as a commercial fisherman on a 35-foot salmon gillnetter and as a federal fisheries observer on 350-foot trawlers in the Bering Sea. He earned masters degrees at the University of Maine studying lobster population dynamics and the epistemology of scientific tools designed with stakeholder end users in mind, and he was awarded a Sea Grant Fellowship in the US Congress. Now, after having served for three years as the executive director of the Pacific Coast Federation of Fishermen’s Associations, the largest commercial fishing organization on the West Coast, Oppenheim is ready to answer the tough questions in a wide-ranging retrospective: What’s in store for the West Coast’s fishing communities? Will suing the oil industry make a difference for ocean climate? Does any of the theory actually matter?

Co-sponsored by the department of economics and the environmental studies program. Free and open to the public.
