The Cape Cod Commercial Fishermen’s Alliance, in collaboration with MIT Sea Grant, will be hosting two virtual online stakeholder meetings to inform planning frameworks that identify what is needed at local, regional, and national levels to initiate workforce development and training programs that promote career paths and entry into the fishing, aquaculture, and seafood industries.

The final framework document will be provided to the National Sea Grant Office for consideration in the development of potential opportunities associated with the Young Fishermen’s Development Act and other initiatives that may provide training, education, outreach, and technical assistance to the U.S. seafood sector.

We value your input and hope you will join us for one of the two meetings:
Thank you and we look forward to your input!
