California recently completed the designation of a new network of marine protected areas (MPAs) along its 800-mile coastline. The process has been heralded as a landmark event in marine resource management and conservation. Dean Wendt will discuss the benefits of having fishermen participate in scientific research and how the data collected by scientists and fishermen are being used to improve fisheries management for California and the nation. Wendt is a professor and acting director at the Center for Coastal Marine Sciences at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo.
