  • Extension Specialist talks aquaculture law at UCLA | California Sea Grant
    second largest consumer of seafood yet we import 91 of the seafood that we eat About half of our seafood imports come from aquaculture and this is likely to increase due to rising demand for seafood domestically and internationally The healthy and local food movements environmental groups and scientists from industry and academia are focusing increasing attention and resources on aquaculture s potential to be a domestic source of seafood The legal field on the other hand has not yet given much attention to aquaculture However food and agricultural law is becoming more popular in the legal realm and aquaculture is a subcategory of those fields that moving forward will require independent analysis To move towards intelligently regulating aquaculture applicants lawyers regulators and decisionmakers must better understand the field and the regulatory framework Held at the UCLA School of Law the California Aquaculture Law Symposium is an effort to begin the broader discussion about aquaculture law starting in California with coastal and offshore aquaculture About California Sea Grant NOAA s California Sea Grant College Program funds marine research education and outreach throughout California Our headquarters is at Scripps Institution of Oceanography University of California San Diego we are one of

    non trawl and recreational species allowed to be extracted by depth and locations and may have seasonal restrictions according to NOAA Office of National Marine Sanctuaries Principal Investigators Mary Gleason The Nature Conservancy and Rick Starr California Sea Grant preparing to deploy the video lander off of the Big Sur coast The RCAs have been in place for more than a decade but the extent of stock rebuilding within the closures has yet to be determined California Sea Grant Extension Director Rick Starr has worked with Mary Gleason of the Nature Conservancy to put together a team of commercial fishermen state and federal management agencies academic institutions and non governmental organizations that are evaluating the contribution of RCAs to rebuilding the overfished species The RCAs have been closed for more than 12 years now and it s important to find out what s happened in those areas since the closure said Starr Conservation needs are being met by the closures but we need to start thinking about harvesting the healthy stocks that live in those areas Using a combination of standardized hook and line fishing activities and a video lander system Starr and his team of scientists and fishermen are able to survey the closures and validate predictive maps with scientific data to get a better understanding of rockfish abundance and distribution The video lander system works like a lazy Susan a pair of video cameras are mounted to a rotating tray and dropped into the ocean The mounted cameras transmit the signal and record the fishes and their habitat Back in the lab scientists review the footage to determine fish species lengths and densities This study will advance understanding of finer scale distributions habitat associations and demographic patterns for overfished species inside the closures to support bycatch avoidance plans
