Saving Fisheries


Going to Pacific Ocean off Oregon for EDF to Promote Sustainable Fisheries

The Environmental Defense Fund has asked John to work with their partners in Oregon to promote their sustainable fisheries program. John spent a day on a the commercial fishing boat Miss May feeling queasy as he produced video, stills, and flew a DJI Inspire drone. Landing a drone on a pitching deck in 15 foot seas is pretty tricky and John was happy to report that nobody got a bad haircut. The EDF program starts with science and includes community organizing, policy making, monitoring, and growing upscale markets for the fish.
