Abstract

In 2006, the New England Fisheries Management Council agreed to consider alternative approaches to groundfish management, including an approach called Local Area Management. Craig Pendleton, a Saco groundfisherman and coordinating director of the Northwest Atlantic Marine Alliance, says "passion, diversity and livelihood are key ingredients that have been stamped out of the fishery, while management has been trying to fit fishermen into simple boxes." With details on the fishermen's efforts, including the new Area Management Coalition, and on parallel West Coast efforts.
