The Fisheries Leadership & Sustainability Forum program wound down in 2019. We are thankful for the support of our funders, partners, and collaborators. This website and resources from past projects will continue to be available to the fisheries management community.
Connecting the federal fisheries management community
The Fisheries Leadership & Sustainability Forum provided policy-neutral support to strengthen the federal fisheries management process.
Our Project Portfolio (2008 – 2018)
The Fisheries Forum provided expert convening, facilitation, and research services on a wide range of fisheries science and management topics. Our project portfolio included forums, council support, and collaborations and special projects.
Learning, sharing, and leading
We convened decision makers, staff, and invited experts from across management regions to explore high-priority topics, network with colleagues, and share experiences in a policy-neutral setting.
Understanding challenges, exploring solutions
We provided a wide range of services to help councils engage in targeted problem solving, and support creative conversations on challenging topics.
Adding value within our community
We collaborated with councils, NOAA Fisheries, stakeholder groups, and other partners to support dialogue and information sharing within and across management regions.
