Born to Fish

Chris Brown

President, Rhode Island Commercial Fishermen’s Association
Fishery: Rhode Island Fluke

“Since catch shares programs have been introduced in our area I’ve seen no downside. I’ve watched the value of the fish we’re bringing in increase by 20-25%. I see fishermen burning less fuel, having more days off, and I see an overall improvement in the quality of life for us all.”
