GOM Council Working Group

Exeter, NH - June 13, 2005

I was invited to speak at the June GOM Council Working Group meeting. My tasking was to introduce the NE Council's Ecosystem Pilot Project, and my objective was to introduce the concepts and ideas that the Council will be working from as we progress with the regional stakeholder meetings. Understanding that the audience is primarily CZM and other coastal managers, and not fishery experts per se, the hope is that the presentation will generate comments and ideas that could enhance the stakeholder meetings and the project in general.
