Boston Seafood Show

I'm excited to be heading to Boston today for the annual Boston Seafood Show. I'm on a panel tomorrow, discussing how to fix unsustainable fisheries. The panel deals with the larger topic of illegal, unregulated, and unreported fishing, and "red list" fish. Red list includes the IUCN global red list of endangered fish and red lists of unsustainable seafood.

I guess I should figure out what I'm going to say. I have some ideas, and 6 hours on 2 airplanes today with an layover in Chicago. That should be enough time. Any suggestions? No kidding, I'll listen if you post suggestions in the comments here.

I'll explain my work and the broader issues as I see them. Then I'll duck the flying rotten tomatoes and fish.

I'll do my best to blog the show, hope I'm not too busy eating seafood.

You could suggest death to all illegal fishers. After all they are killing us by their unsustainable practices. How about one line, one hook per person.
Probably a bit to radical for suit wearers, but hell, drastic times calls for drastic measures.
Tight lines

IUCN Threatened species should not be fished. Meanwhile, do you know any Anindya Sen in the Boston Area, that MATCHES my blog ?

We'll be watching intently to see what you have to say this week from the show and your work there. This is a topic we intend to address regularly one we're out of the gates.
