Born to Fish

Jack Cox

Owner, Crystal Coast Fisheries
Fishery: South Atlantic Snapper Grouper

“Under a catch share management system the public can feel good about eating local seafood. We could get fish to the consumer that is sustainable and harvested in the right way, and both the public and commercial fishermen can be proud of that. The race-to-fish style of fishing simply doesn’t afford us the same opportunity.”
