The Sustainable Fisheries Act and the 21st Century:
A Critical Examination of Issues Associated with
Implementing the New Federal Fisheries Law
A conference at Tulane University, New Orleans, September 5-6, 1997
Co-Sponsors: National Marine Fisheries Service, Southeast Region
Center for Marine Conservation
Seagrant Legal Program, LSU
Tulane Law School
What will implementation of the amended Magnuson-Stevens Act really mean
for fishing in the 21st century? How will the new law deal with
over-fishing and bycatch? What challenges confront the new "essential
fish habitat" provisions? What are the prospects for ITQs? What are the
connections with international fisheries management regimes?
These issues and more (hypoxic zones, coral reefs, marsh management) will
be addressed by those responsible for implementing the Act, and by
fishermen, conservationists, scientists and lawyers. Gary Matlock,
Director of Sustainable Fisheries for the National Marine Fisheries
Service, will provide a historical perspective on the Act at a luncheon
address. Senator Trent Lott is the invited keynoter.
Who should attend? Fishermen, resource managers, conservationists,
academics, lawyers and students. This is not just for lawyers.
