Schewe study on federal fishery program, Vietnamese fishers published

Rebecca Schewe"NOAA fishery observers and Vietnamese American fishers in the Southeastern US," co-authored by Rebecca Schewe, associate professor of sociology, and Cassie Dutton '16 MA (Soc), was published in Marine Policy. The study examines the experience of Vietnamese American fishers in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama with this federal observer program. It concludes that current observer training inadequately addresses potential language and cultural barriers between fishers and observers, undermining the potential of the observer policy. 09/13/18
