The Beaver State Podcast Episode 30: Oregon's Commercial Fisheries

October 15, 2020

Oregon's commercial fisheries are also sustainable, several to the highest levels of certification. We dive into four of Oregon's commercial fisheries in a conversation with ODFW to Fishery Management Section Leader Maggie Sommer.
