Via Youtube: The West Coast groundfish fishery is an American success story almost two decades in the making. In the 1990s, the previously abundant fishery collapsed, and was declared a federal disaster. Fishermen voluntarily pulled boats out of the water and worked in partnership with environmental nonprofits, and fishery management councils to fundamentally change the way they fished. 14 years later, after more than a decade of hard work, 13 species became MSC certified as sustainable. Now more abundant than ever, this fishery is thriving off of the California, Oregon, and Washington coast.
