The Magnuson-Stevens Act listening session held in Seattle, Washington on Nov. 22 by Rep. Jared Huffman (D-CA) was a big success. Several panelists’ comments touched on other key issues that Mr. Huffman has prioritized, including fishery disaster reform and the protection of essential fish habitat. Support for coastal infrastructure in the face of sea level rise appeared unanimous, while guaranteed opportunities for fishing communities when stocks shift or are rebuilt was touched on and did not appear contentious.
