A Year of Convening Emerging Fishery Leaders

Tidings | Apr 20, 2020

A group of fishermen, managers, and scientists gather in a MREP workshop.

In November, we hosted our final Marine Resource Education Program (MREP) workshop of 2018, in Tampa, FL. This capped a big year for the MREP team, in which they offered nine workshops across three separate regions of the U.S. These workshops bring together fishermen, managers, and scientists in a neutral setting outside the regulatory process.

"It has been incredibly eye-opening,” said one participating fisherman. “This program is a MUST for anyone looking to get involved in fisheries management.”

Several more workshops will be offered in the coming year. Learn more about MREP and how to participate in the next workshop.
