Born to Fish

Jason Delacruz

Vice President, Gulf of Mexico Reef Fish Shareholders Alliance
Fishery: Gulf of Mexico Reef Fish

“I support catch shares because I believe there is hope for our grouper fisheries and the fishermen who depend on its supply, and I feel a catch share program is a system that could work. No one is happy where things are now. Restaurants especially need a consistent, steady supply of local seafood. You can’t open and close fisheries—they simply can’t keep up.”
