Collaborations and special projects
Adding value within our community
The Fisheries Forum supports opportunities for dialogue and information sharing within and across regions. We possess in-depth knowledge of the Magnuson-Stevens Act and federal management context, as well as familiarity with regional fisheries, management approaches, and challenges. As a neutral convener we can work across regions, roles, and responsibilities to share regional approaches and “lessons learned,” support effective communication and working relationships, and explore shared questions and challenges.
We work with councils, NOAA Fisheries, and other institutional and stakeholder groups. The Fisheries Forum has contributed facilitation support, project and event management, and substantive expertise to the following projects.
