On February 10, 2020, NFFC director Niaz Dorry served on a panel titled, “Surf ‘n’ Turf: can our seafood survive Big Ag and climate change?”, hosted by FERN’s (Food and Environment Reporting Network) Leah Douglas. Niaz stated, “None of the fisherman we work with are against putting limits on how much fish you catch. It’s the fact that since those limits have been put into place, the limits have become profit-making tools. They have commodified the right to fish.”
