2024 Marine Resource Education Program (MREP) Southeast Workshop Scheduled

Apply Now - Participation is Limited

The Gulf of Maine Research Institute is pleased to announce the Marine Resource Education Program (MREP) in the Southeast fishery region for 2024.

By fishermen, for fishermen, MREP provides fishermen and others with an interest in federal fisheries with an opportunity to gain insight into how fisheries data are collected and how those data lead to regulations. MREP brings together commercial, charter, and recreational fishermen with scientists, managers, and other marine resource professionals from the South Atlantic, Gulf of Mexico, and the Caribbean to learn, share insights, and network in a neutral and professional setting. Participants leave the program empowered and better prepared to be a voice in federal fisheries management.

The 5-day workshop is free to selected participants and includes travel reimbursement, hotel accommodations, and meals. Seats are limited, and preference will be given to applications received by May 27th.
