KEYNOTE & DINNER


High Liners and Rabble Rousers: Legendary Participants of the North Carolina Commercial Fishing Industry

Barbara Garrity-Blake


The history of North Carolina’s commercial fisheries is well documented. Less visible are the personalities and lived experiences of commercial fishers who have shared their knowledge and stories with researchers throughout the years. I will highlight a few people who have helped me better understand the complexities of commercial fishing. I will describe how I crossed paths with them, and offer reflections on their legacy achievements in helping shape North Carolina fisheries and management in the past fifty years.

She teaches marine fisheries policy at the Duke University Marine Laboratory and is president of NC Catch, a local seafood advocacy non-profit.
