Center for Coastal Studies presents: Charting a Course to Mutual Trust and Understanding: Fishermen and Scientists Working Together for Sustainable Fisheries

Presented by Owen Nichols
Wednesday, October 25 at 7 pm
Napi's Restaurant, 7 Freeman Street, Provincetown

In New England and around the world, fishermen and scientists are working together to keep fisheries sustainable while confronting environmental change and human impacts. These collaborations build relationships between the fishing and scientific communities as well as providing valuable information for management of sustainable fisheries.

Owen Nichols will present some case studies from here on Cape Cod and discuss how and why such collaborations form and how the partners work together to build mutual trust and understanding while overcoming the challenges of differing perspectives.

Owen is Director of Marine Fisheries at the Center for Coastal Studies. His primary research interests include distributional ecology, fisheries oceanography, marine mammal/fishery interactions, and ecosystem-based fishery management. He is a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Massachusetts - Dartmouth School for Marine Science and Technology, and a guest investigator at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.

This presentation is part of the Center for Coastal Studies Winter Lecture Series, which is supported by Helen and Napi Van Dereck and Napi's Restaurant.
Free, all welcome. Participants are encouraged to arrive at 5 pm and enjoy Napi's special early bird dinner!
