The focus of this seminar was on the use and abuse of the planet's fisheries. Environmental writers and business reporters, editors, columnists and editorial writers joined representatives of the commercial and sports fishing industries to discuss the environmental, social, and economic issues surrounding the management of our marine resources. Outings to the Bodega Marine Laboratory and San Francisco's Fisherman's Wharf were incorporated to enhance journalists' understanding of the issues under discussion.
