Dr. Vincent will explain why we need to end bottom trawl fishing in the ocean, using a lens of research, management and policy. Our voyage begins with seahorse conservation and ends with a determination to stop this most destructive of fishing practices globally. Dr. Vincent’s team has conducted innovative research on bottom trawl fisheries around the world, from Mexico to Viet Nam and from India to China. Along the way they have uncovered the damage to species and spaces on a scale not yet exposed. They have also consulted with and studied the people involved, seeking new ways to reconcile conservation and human well-being. Project Seahorse is now forging new projects and partnerships to end this annihilation fishing.
Dr. Vincent is a Professor of marine conservation at the Institute for the Oceans and Fisheries, UBC, and Director of Project Seahorse
