Born to Fish

John Schmidt

Fisherman, Gulf Fishermen’s Association
Fishery: Gulf of Mexico Reef Fish

"We implemented our catch share program in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010, and it has really been an incredible thing. We are able to rebuild our fishery at the same time that we deliver fresh seafood to the country, and fishermen have real year-round jobs now."
