The project aims to strengthen engagement of the fishing community in SEFCRI projects with the aim of harnessing the capacity of this community to promote coral reef ecosystem conservation. This is to be achieved through implementation of a participatory process to engage diverse fisheries stakeholders in developing new fisheries-related Recommended Management Actions (RMAs) and in reviewing water quality and habitat-related RMAs developed during the Our Florida Reefs Community Planning Process, with a view to identifying and promoting RMAs that address concerns considered critical by fisheries stakeholders.
