After his deck hand Jaymie Wilson climbs aboard, Kevin Dunn, skipper of the Iron Lady, prepares to cast off from a Warrenton, Ore. dock to begin an early morning departure for a fishing trip off the Northwest coast. Under a management system put in place in 2011, Dunn's vessels holds catch shares of 29 species of fish. He finds some of these fish at depths of more than 2,000 feet, and others closer to shore in shallower water along the continental shelf. The 54-year-old Dunn is a veteran fishermen who worked off Alaska before tiring of the months away from home, and returning to fish out of Oregon.
