Cooperative Research Branch Seeks Stakeholder Input

The future and sustainability of our region’s fisheries depends on collaboration. Only by cultivating meaningful partnerships to support effective research programs can we produce applicable results, including more efficient fishing gear, better data, and stronger markets.
