Greater Amberjack in the Gulf of Mexico & South Atlantic, Listening Session @ Online Event
Dec 7 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Greater Amberjack is an important recreational and commercial fish species in the Gulf of Mexico and
South Atlantic regions. To address management and stakeholder concerns about the Greater Amberjack
fisheries in both regions, Congress authorized funding of $10 million for a multi-year Greater Amberjack
Research Program to be implemented through a cooperative agreement with the National Sea Grant
Office and the National Marine Fisheries Service.

Draft priorities will soon be available, and listening sessions will be held to get feedback on these
priorities.

  • Texas-hosted Session – Dec. 7 from 6-8 p.m.
  • Louisiana-hosted Session – Dec. 8 from 3-5 p.m.

Participants from either state are welcome to attend the session that best fits their schedule.

Application Deadline for Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP)
Dec 11 @ 4:00 pm

The goal of the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) is to increase the number of undergraduates pursuing coastal science careers by encouraging and supporting specific undergraduate research activities. Students propose, carry out and report results of a research project related to an existing project funded by Sea Grant.

Note: A UROP application must be submitted by a faculty member. Students should not submit the application.

The Gulf of Mexico Conference (GoMCon) “Preview” @ Online Event
Apr 14 all-day

Please mark your calendars for The Gulf of Mexico Conference (GoMCon) “preview” on April 14th, 2021!

GoMCon combines the annual Gulf of Mexico Alliance (GOMA) All Hands Meeting, the annual Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill and Ecosystems Science (GoMOSES) Conference, and the triannual State of the Gulf Summit.  The virtual GoMCon preview emphasizes the intersection of scientific research and the management of Gulf Coast human and natural systems, the focus of the 2022 in-person conference.

The 3-hour virtual preview includes a keynote speaker and panels designed to present:

  • Where we are: the status of Gulf coastal and ocean research and restoration.
  • Where we are going: what science and research is needed to inform Gulf restoration and management.
  • How to get there: the funding needed to achieve necessary Gulf science and research.

The preview is an introduction to the main event, the in-person conference in 2022!  It is a great way to make sure researchers, coastal resource managers, and interested stakeholders have an opportunity to collaborate on managing this precious natural resource we call the Gulf of Mexico.

The event is free. For more information and to register, please visit the GoMCon website at https://gomcon2021.dryfta.com.
