Description

This story took a look at the largest company that provides at-sea watchdogs to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. It found that the president of the company was part of an influential group that helped convince the government to use catch shares, which require more watchdogs -- and thus more money for his company. It also found that the company has a grant to assess the success of catch shares, a potential conflict-of-interest when the company benefits from the program.
