The 2018 MARACOOS Annual Meeting will include an all-day meeting with partners, collaborators, and stakeholders on May 18 preceded by an evening networking reception on May 17 with the MARACOOS Board of Directors.
A team of fishing industry veterans and supporting scientists has received a two year grant to unlock the secret of Atlantic mackerel habitats and migrations on the US east coast. With support from the industry-driven ASMFC Mid-Atlantic Collaborative Fisheries Program, the team will focus on a project titled:
“Collaborative development of a winter habitat model for Atlantic Mackerel, “version 2.0”, for the identification of “cryptic” habitats and estimation of population availability to assessment surveys and the fishery”
On April 7, Peter Moore and Grace Saba will lead a discussion titled "Building a Mid-Atlantic ocean acidification network: Brining together stakeholders and data monitoring efforts through MARACOOS" at the 68th Interstate Seafood Seminar & North East Shellfish Sanitation Association Conference.
