How Theory Becomes Operationalized 

Bruce Turris; Executive Manager- Canadian Groundfish Research and Conservation Society 

Bruce is an economist, but very much a practitioner. For the first 17 years of his career, he was an official with the federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans, in the Pacific region. He subsequently went into private practice, working very closely with industry as well as the government. He does extensive consulting work outside of Canada, as well as within, with examples being the US (both coasts), China, and Europe.

Bruce provides policy advice, strategic planning, and management services to clients such as commercial fishing associations, government agencies, and environmental organizations. He has been active in the field for 30 years, involved in the design, development, and implementation of cooperative and shared management and monitoring arrangements in fisheries throughout North America
