2021 Introductory Fisheries Science for Stakeholders (IFISSH) course
Registration is now open for the 2021 Introductory Fisheries Science for Stakeholders (IFISSH) course offered through Rutgers Cooperative Extension (RCE).
The objective of this course is to educate stakeholders of New Jersey’s commercial and recreational marine fisheries so that they will better understand and make progress on issues impacting their industries, including the science, management, and responsible stewardship of fishery resources.
Class sessions will meet weekly on Tuesday evenings (6:30 – 9:00 PM) from February 16 through April 20. All classes will meet via Zoom webinar during the COVID-19 pandemic and will include a mixture of presentations with Q&A and open discussion periods. Additionally, as circumstances surrounding the pandemic allow, there will be two optional field trips during the summer of 2021.
Please see the attached flyer for additional details including a list of topics and invited speakers.
There is a $25 program fee for this course and registration is open to all who are interested. Please feel free to share this email and flyer with anyone who you think might be interested.
