Monthly Fisheries Forum Jan. 21

Charlotte and Lee County Fishing Stakeholders are invited to the next
Charlotte Harbor Fisheries Forum on Thursday Jan. 21, 2016

Charlotte and Lee counties, FL – Join other anglers at the monthly Charlotte Harbor Fisheries Forum, an independent community-based discussion geared toward informing fisheries management and science, and providing a venue for public engagement in local fisheries issues and building links between stakeholder knowledge, science, and management.

The Charlotte Harbor Fisheries Forum, initiated by partnership of local Florida Sea Grant agents with the University of Florida (UF) and Mote Marine Laboratory, offers repeating, open meetings where local anglers and others interested in sustaining Charlotte Harbor’s fisheries can share their knowledge, ideas, questions and comments. The ultimate goal of the Fisheries Forum is to pinpoint the needs and status of fisheries in more detail at the local level, allowing communities to give more complete, collaborative and sustained feedback to government agencies and researchers. The objectives of this meeting are to present results of our online survey and continue to move forum priorities forward.

The meeting will take place from 6:00 – 8:30 p.m. at the Laishley Marina, 120 Laishley Ct, Punta Gorda.
