New Calculations of Conch Catch Can Add Up to a Healthy Fishery - May 18, 2016 - 11:27:57 AM

“DEMA has done a great job of monitoring fish sold to the country’s fish plants,” said Aylin Ulman, a researcher recently based at the world-renowned Institute for the Oceans and Fisheries in Vancouver, Canada...
