NECAN January 2016 Update
Happy New Year!
Stakeholder Engagement in Long Island Sound
NECAN held its sixth and final stakeholder engagement workshop in Shelton, Connecticut on January 11 in conjunction with the NOAA Milford Aquaculture Seminar. Almost 40 stakeholders from both Connecticut and New York attended the meeting and discussed ocean acidification observations and issues that are specific to Long Island Sound. The meeting summary from the workshop is currently being compiled and will soon be available on the NECAN website.
Progress towards an Implementation Plan
Work continues towards writing our implementation plan.
NECAN will be presenting at both the Social Coast Forum and the Maine Fishermen’s Forum in 2016. NECAN will be presenting at the Social Coast Forum next month on the NECAN approach of stakeholder engagement and collaboration on a regional scale. This year’s theme for Social Coast Forum is understanding people – how where they live, what they do, and what they value is an important part of successful coastal management. The Forum is taking place on February 9-11, 2016 at the Francis Marion Hotel in Charleston, South Carolina.
The Maine Fishermen’s Forum is taking place at the Samoset Resort in Rockland Maine on March 3-5, 2016.
