A new organization, committed to finding ways to help solve the crisis in New England’s Commercial Fishing Industry, is about ready to begin its work. 

The principals behind the Center for Sustainable Fsheries plan a formal “launch” later this month.  They include noted marine scientist Dr. Brian Rothschild, former Mass. Congressman Barney Frank and former New Bedford Mayor Scott Lang.  They’ll be joined by numerous scientists and industry leaders from throughout the region. 

According to Lang, the Center’s mission is to deliver the best available science and economic data about the fishing industry to federal regulators and the general public. 

Lang says the group’s initial focus will be to provide technical assistance for the reauthorization of the Magnuson-Stevens Act, and join the ongoing discussions about  groundfish and scallop allocations. 

Lang says the industry has already shown great support for the Center, and the organization has a website, centerforsustainablefisheries.org.
