MFRE Speaker Series: Fisheries Management

Fisheries Management: How Theory Becomes Operationalized

Date: Tuesday, January 26, 2021

Time: 2:00pm – 3:30pm

Bruce is an economist, but very much a practitioner. For the first 17 years of his career, he was an official with the federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans, in the Pacific region. He subsequently went into private practice, working very closely with industry as well as the government. He does extensive consulting work outside of Canada, as well as within, with examples being the US (both coasts), China and Europe.
