Learning, sharing, and leading
The Fisheries Forum hosts a long-running series of “forums” that convene council members, council staff, NOAA Fisheries staff, and invited experts to explore shared challenges in a neutral setting. The forums are a unique professional development opportunity for managers, scientists, and support staff to share ideas and experiences between regions and explore emerging issues and topics. Forums provide a venue for building professional networks and communities of practice, and supporting effective communication across the science-management interface.
The Fisheries Forum has hosted 15 forums to date. Forum topics are selected in response to feedback from the management community, and provide the opportunity to look ahead to emerging issues and challenges.
