In April 2017, MARCO and MARACOOS co-hosted a workshop to identify and rank means for identifying and communicating the effects of changing ocean conditions related to fisheries and fisheries management in the Mid-Atlantic Region.

 

Workshop planning started in September 2016, with a Steering Committee selected for its representation of industry, and state, federal scientists and managers, and university researchers. The workshop was co-led by Peter Moore/MARACOOS and Josh Kohut/Rutgers University and brought together 30-40 individuals for a working meeting. Invitees were asked to respond to a Request for Information (RFI) in advance of the workshop to inform discussions.
