Educational institution Alaska Sea Grant is planning a virtual and in-person strategy session on Friday, Sept. 30, for educators and training organizations whose goal is to teach newcomers to the seafood industry how to be successful in harvesting.
The strategy session will be a discussion on findings of Sea Grant’s needs assessment and a chance to develop strategies to meet those needs.
Attendees are welcome to participate at the Alaska Sea Grant office conference room in Anchorage or online via Zoom. Registration is required for both in-person and online participation. In-person space is limited, so those interested in being there in person are urged to register soon.
Those attending via Zoom will receive a meeting link on Wednesday, Sept. 28.
Sea Grant officials noted that input from educators and training organizations serving new fishery is of particular relevance.
The event is open to representatives of communities, industries and nonprofit entities as well as teachers students and non-agency government representatives.
