The 2016-2017 roundtable meetings are the latest in a series of Agency efforts taken over the last seven years to enrich its Saltwater Recreational Fisheries Initiative.  A similar set of meetings conducted in 2013 was well received by recreational fishing interests and helped to open lines of communication and improve mutual understanding of priorities between saltwater recreational fishermen and NOAA Fisheries at the regional and national levels.

These discussions look to build on past progress by creating new and strengthening existing relationships; identifying mutual interests; highlighting regional concerns and priorities; identifying regionally shared issues; and providing NOAA Fisheries with important clarifications and insights to inform regional and national agency planning.
