Sustainable Futures Speaker Series

As part of the Sustainable Futures Speaker Series, Dr. Laurie Richmond will present “Fishing Community Sustainability Planning on the California North Coast.” Fishing communities are facing a variety of challenges including declines in participation, reduced access to fish resources, aging physical infrastructure, gentrification, competition from foreign imports, the “graying” or aging of their fleets, and a host of environmental stressors. These factors can represent threats to the continued viability of individual fishing communities. Such communities are clearly in need of tools that will enable them to plan strategically and to be more proactive in charting a sustainable future. This presentation will describe efforts to engage two California north coast fishing communities — Eureka and Shelter Cove — in a bottom-up planning process called Fishing Community Sustainability Planning. Location: Founders Hall 118, Humboldt State University campus.
