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.
The Northeast Fisheries Science Center’s Cooperative Research Branch wants to hear from the region’s fisheries stakeholders. Your input is key to creating a strategic, forward-thinking plan that outlines clear and actionable steps for building community and developing effective cooperative research projects. Thus, we are hosting a series of engagement sessions in August and September to:
- Engage with fishing communities and fisheries stakeholders.
- Identify and learn from the successes and shortfalls of previous research.
- Discuss research ideas and priorities for future projects.
- Recognize and build upon the strengths of our partners.
