Energy Use in Fisheries Symposium Planned

November 14-17, 2010 in Seattle there will be an upcoming symposium titled “Energy Use in Fisheries:  Improving Efficiency and Technological Innovations from a Global Perspective”

This symposium will address both the direct and indirect effects of global energy costs on the seafood harvesting, processing and marketing sectors.  The desired outcomes will include a set of alternative strategies to reduce the carbon footprint of commercial and recreational fishing fleets, the associated financial gain to these industry participants, examples of the government’s role in reducing its imprint, and a set of metrics to measure the level of energy reduction or improved environmental efficacy of different fuel types used by fishing fleets.
