"The United States -- which operated at a $14 billion seafood trade deficit in 2016-- lags far behind other countries in aquaculture development due to complex regulatory policies and social opposition. Moreover, concerns about the environmental impact of offshore aquaculture, as well as potential conflicts with other sectors such as wild-capture fisheries, have hampered development, even in areas primed for aquacultural success."

"For nearly a decade, Northwest communities have been embroiled in fights over coal, oil, and gas export schemes. It’s no secret that these debates are fractious—they strain civic institutions and often leave bruised feelings. Yet on Washington’s Pacific Ocean coast, a quieter and more collaborative approach is yielding inspiring results. What’s happening under the aegis of the Marine Spatial Planning initiative is, in many ways, a model for the kind of slow-but-careful collaboration that might have forestalled these conflicts in the first place."

"'Disappointed pretty much sums it up," said BC Seafood Alliance Executive Director Christina Burridge of the impending announcement of the expanded fishery closures in the Offshore Pacific Area of Interest for marine protection. "Maps circulated in June showed several sea mount closures and we agreed with closing them. At the end of last month, just as the offshore advisory process got underway, we were told that the remaining two seamounts would be closed. No discussion with industry or through the advisory process before we lost access.'"
