Buddy has worked in the fishing industry for 30+ years as both a fishermen and fish house owner operator. He has experience working on both the state and federal levels to assist in the implementation of IFQ’s into the red snapper fishery. He operates on the level of educating the entire fishing industry on the benefits of sustainable fishing practices to secure the future of Gulf fisheries. With his leadership skills and first hand knowledge of fishery issues, the Alliance will be strengthening its position as we enter times of complicated discussions within the fishery — particularly with respect to reallocation and MSA reauthorization.
“I am proud of the work that we have done in the Alliance over the last 5 or 6 years. It is not easy to be the first to try new things and occasionally shake up an industry. But I know that everything we do is to help the Gulf of Mexico and protect our fisheries.” said Guindon
