The Morro Bay waterfront is getting national attention for a unique plan to bring back the local fishing industry.  It's called the Quota Fund, and it's bringing together scientists, fishermen, and civic leaders to work on viable solutions to help strengthen the port's fishing industry.

KCBX News Director Randol White speaks with the Quota Fund's Executive Director Andrea Lueker, and Rick Algert, who helped organize the effort and now serves as the fund's secretary and treasurer.
