As part of an ongoing effort to reach out to the commercial fishing industry, PCFFA and IFR staff will be visiting ports up and down the state of California and conducting Fishermen’s Workshops. The goal of the Workshops is to advise the fleet of the several ongoing policy challenges to commercial fishing opportunity, and to discuss ways to improve PCFFA and IFR’s effectiveness in representing the fleet. Workshops took place in Morro Bay and Half Moon Bay last week, and will continue into Ft. Bragg on 12 July, and Eureka on 13 July. All fishermen interested in joining the fight for long-term fishing opportunity are invited to attend.
Flyers for each of the meetings are available here:
