U.S. Senate candidate Gabriel Gomez sat down with about 50 Southcoast voters in the UMass Dartmouth library for nearly an hour Wednesday night, in what was supposed to be a debate between Gomez and democrat Ed Markey.

Gomez fielded a broad range of questions from moderator Michael Goodman, a UMass Dartmouth professor.

When asked about dramatic cuts in catch quotas for fishermen, Gomez tells WBSM's "More Than Just Talk" he trusts the science and experience of those closest to the trade.

Gomez says if elected, he would sign onto Attorney General Martha Coakley's lawsuit against federal fishing regulators.

On immigration reform, Gomez says he'd like to join the "Gang of Eight" in Washington, while securing the borders and making a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants already living in the U.S..
