Thor J. Lassen
First Paragraph

Ocean Trust conducted a series of workshops, meetings and interviews with association leaders from the commercial fishing industry between November 1997 and May 1998 on behalf of the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation to determine the level of interest, priorities and concerns with a proposed census of marine life. In all regions, there was great interest in the fisheries census.
