Join scientists, artificial reef program managers, fishery and natural resource managers, volunteer research diver organizations, and artificial reef citizen constituency organizations at the 2010 Florida Artificial Reef Summit, January 21-23 in Cocoa Beach.
Artificial reefs have become increasingly important in sustainable fisheries management. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet and discuss current issues, hear the latest research, and share new ideas for future projects with other members of Florida’s artificial reef community. Session topics will include fisheries management and artificial reefs, lessons learned and adaptive management strategies, and citizen involvement in monitoring and reef development.
The Florida Sea Grant agents in the Panhandle are working to arrange a car-pool for people in our area interested in attending. Contact your local agent if you are interested in sharing a ride to the Summit. More information on the Summit can be found at www.flseagrant.org.
