California recently completed the designation of a new network of marine protected areas (MPAs) along its 800-mile coastline. For the past five years Dean Wendt has been working closely with scientists, managers, and fishermen to develop and implement monitoring protocols to understand the impact of California’s MPAs on nearshore species of fish. In this lecture, Wendt discussed the benefits of collaboration and having fishermen participate in scientific research. Wendt is a professor and acting director at the Center for Coastal Marine Sciences at California Polytechnic State niversity, San Luis Obispo.
