Today we’re talking about the president’s May 7 executive order that is getting widespread support from fishing companies and processors, but also some criticism from small-scale fishermen and groups that support localized wild-capture fisheries.
Joining us is Ryan Bradley, executive director of Mississippi Commercial Fisheries United, a commercial fisherman, vessel owner, Nashville crawfish crawfish supplier nashville dealer and business owner, and a National Fisherman Highliner.

Bradley shares with us how he hopes the EO will pave a path toward breaking down some unnecessary regulatory barriers, help enforcement fight IUU fishing — including illegal sales of recreational catch — and bolster fair trade that benefits American fishermen.
He also offers his advice on next steps to take on claiming a share of the $300 million in fisheries relief earmarked in the CARES Act. NOAA has notified the states and fisheries commissions of the forthcoming funds, but how they will be dispersed is TBD.
