Lone Star Shoreline with Eddie Fisher
A two step along the Texas Coast
On this episode of the American Shoreline Podcast, Peter A. Ravella and Tyler Buckingham don their boots for a stroll along the Texas coast with Eddie Fisher, a fourth generation coastal Texan who has spent his career working in the public and private sectors along the Lone Star state's beaches and bays. He spent 10 years as the Director of the Coastal Erosion Program for the General Land Office before transitioning to the private sector and is now the Vice President of Gulf Hydrographic and Coastal Consulting. Subjects discussed: impacts of dredging the Freeport Channel to 50'; changes and trends in Cameron Country's development and what might happen in the coming years; Eddie's top coastal project priorities; looking to Louisiana for guidance on Texas coastal management; and, the importance of bringing stakeholders and local voters into the equation.
