This publication assesses the future of diesel-powered fishing vessels, and offers new information on energy innovations. Even though no technology is in the works that will replace the diesel engine in boats, diesel engines are becoming considerably easier on the environment. Cleaning up petrodiesel is already resulting in positive emission improvements, and biodiesel offers the prospect for “zeroing out” the diesel engine carbon footprint. Getting to that point will require consistent and forward-looking government energy and environmental policy, according to veteran fisheries consultant Greg Fisk.
