68th GCFI Conference to be held in Panama City

9 - 13 November 2015

The theme of the Gulf and Caribbean Fisheries Institute (GCFI) Conference is "Two Oceans... Same Coastal Issues" and will focus on applying fisheries and marine science to solve problems by bringing multiple users of ocean resources together to make informed and coordinated decisions about how to sustainably use these resources.

The emphasis will be on the practical, interdisciplinary, and ecosystem-based approaches of marine special planning (MSP) and how effective MSP can make a difference in both conservation and development. Addressing the issues of connectivity, fisheries management, conservation, and related issues at GCFI will aid in responding critical marine resource issues within the Wider Caribbean Region and the tropical eastern Pacific.
