Conservation of New England Fisheries

The South Kingstown Land Trust and The Nature Conservancy invite you to a talk by Captain Dave Preble on Thursday, June 26th at the SKLT Barn.The author of several books and many articles, Preble is an expert tuna fisherman who has spent a lifetime on the waters of the northeast coast as a charter captain and on commercial vessels. Descended from generations of seafaring people, Preble now devotes his life to the conservation and management of New England’s fishery resources.

Dave has a wealth of knowledge of New England’s fish and the people who depend on them for their livelihoods and recreation.  Dave believes that the primary fishery management goal at all levels must be conservation of the resource, and that such a policy will always be in everyone’s best economic and cultural interests. He has stated, “I will do whatever I can to protect our living marine resources for my own benefit and for the benefit of my grandchildren.”

The program begins at 6:00 PM with potluck appetizers and the talk will begin at 7:00 PM. Reservations –
