An Environmental Success Story for Fishing on America’s West Coast

A rare environmental success story is taking place on the West Coast of the United States.

The numbers of groundfish have greatly increased in recent years. The term groundfish describes a number of fish species that live near the bottom of the Pacific.

Shems Jud is the regional director for the Environmental Defense Fund’s ocean program. “It’s really a conservation home run,” he said, adding, “It’s the biggest environmental story that no one knows about.”
