UNH fisheries expert to speak at American Association for the Advancement of Science meeting
When the U.S. Commission on Ocean Policy ended its three-year analysis of the health of the world's oceans, it stated that they are in a state of crisis and that a broad, coordinated, scientifically sound approach called "ecosystem-based management" needs to be applied. Andrew Rosenberg of the University of New Hampshire will relay that message at the annual American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) conference held Feb. 17 to 21 in Washington, D.C.
