For the past year, Gatherer Outfitters, a family-owned fishing charter company operating in the Bay Area, has been organizing all-female fishing trips to challenge gender stereotypes and empower women in the industry. However, this year brings a significant change as fishery managers have decided to cancel the salmon fishing season along the California coast. The decision aims to protect the declining Chinook salmon population, impacted by climate change and dam construction. The cancellation poses economic implications for the fishing industry, impacting a sector worth $1.4 billion and supporting 23,000 jobs. Despite this setback, Gatherer Outfitters and other businesses are exploring alternative species like halibut to sustain their operations amidst this unprecedented change.
