The Fisheries Leadership & Sustainability Forum (Fisheries Forum) is a small, policy-neutral organization that supports the regional fishery management council process. We help create opportunities for problem solving and discussion in support of the council process, and provide a neutral interface among councils and their management partners, including NOAA Fisheries. The Fisheries Forum brings valuable convening and facilitation capacity to a wide range of timely regional and national topics, and provides a variety of services and products including national forums, council support and cross-regional collaborations.
The Fisheries Forum is a project of New Venture Fund and Duke University’s Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions. The Fisheries Forum team is a small, dedicated staff of two. We work remotely from east and west coast locations.
