LSF is asking members of the seafood industry to come together and discuss how to keep their businesses competitive and sustainable. In rounds of meetings throughout the coast, industry members will share ideas about how to adapt to coastal change and what they need to make those adaptations work.

We want to highlight adaptation strategies created by those most affected by coastal changes — the shrimpers, crabbers, oyster fishers, finfishers, dockworkers, and processors — who are at the heart of our coastal seafood economy and culture.

Please join us:
