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.
