Blue Fish Radio: How the US’s NOAA is Helping Grow Fish Stocks

How the US’s NOAA is Helping Grow Fish Stocks

Why the “weather warning” organization has quietly evolved into a conservation champion

Outdoor Canada is pleased to present Blue Fish Radio—podcasts about the future of fish and fishing in Canada. The program, produced and hosted by Lawrence Gunther, is dedicated to sharing first-hand angling knowledge, scientific discoveries and supporting local champions who protect and enhance their waters.

In this episode of Blue Fish Radio, Lawrence talks to Laurel Bryant, chief of external affairs for  the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). They discuss how NOAA has evolved to embrace science-based fish conservation and stakeholder engagement over the past 40 years, the resulting—and dramatic—turn-around in wild fish stocks, and NOAA’s new Fishwatch app and website, which brings important information about fish stocks and harvests to consumers.
