Announcing the NAAFE Forum 2013 Speaker: Dr. Ray Hilborn of the University of Washington -- “Measuring the Impact of Fisheries: Moving Beyond "Overfishing" to Include Economic, Social and Environmental Consequences”
NAAFE is an international group of industry, government and academic practitioners of fisheries economics. The purposes of NAAFE are to facilitate communication among North American fisheries and aquaculture economists in industry, academia, government and other areas, to promote dialogue between economists and others interested in fisheries and aquaculture, and to advance fisheries and aquaculture economics and its useful applications.
Please plan to join us for NAAFE Forum 2013, "Marine Resource Management under
Increasing Complexities and Uncertainties", at the Tradewinds Island Grand resort on St. Pete Beach, Florida, USA, May 21-24.
As usual our Forum will provide ample opportunities for presentation and interaction on a wide variety of fisheries, aquaculture, and seafood economics topics. Anyone with an interest in the economics of these topics is welcome-we encourage participation from academia, trade,
