About “From the Waterfront”
Fishing is a rich part of our American tradition. Fisheries policy and management can be highly technical, but at the heart of it lies stories of the men and women who make a living off of the last wild places, or who connect with nature, families, and communities through fishing recreationally and eating the bounties of the ocean. The Marine Fish Conservation Network is committed to ensuring that wild ocean fisheries are as much a part of our nation’s future as they are of its past.
“From the Waterfront” shares stories of our fishing past, present, and future to demonstrate the invaluable role that healthy, well-managed fisheries play our American fishing tradition.
