In August, the Marine Resource Education Program (MREP) team hosted their first fisheries science workshop on the West Coast.
The workshop, hosted in Santa Cruz, CA, was specifically designed for the region through collaboration with local fishermen, scientists, and regulators.
“Whether we’re working in New England, the Southeast, the Caribbean, or now the West Coast, our goal remains the same,” said Alexa Dayton, MREP program manager. “We want to foster industry leadership by exposing fishermen to the tools and information they need to effectively participate in fisheries science and management.”
