Our Partners Say...

"Commercial fishery product landings begin the product development, processing and distribution changes which create additional economic value and impacts beyond the initial landed value and economic impact."
Tom Murray
VIMS Economics Professor Emeritus
One company or one organization cannot possibly undertake issues as grand as climate change implications alone. The community of companies and universities has proven to be much stronger than the sum of our individual members.
Guy Simmons
SeaWatch International & Former SCEMFIS Chair
The fishing industry in New Jersey, both commercial and recreational, has a huge impact on our coastal communities. We are very pleased to be part of this science-based organization focused on cooperative research with NMFS and other fisheries management bodies to ensure that we have healthy, sustainable fisheries now and in the future.
