The role of citizen science is an evolving and potentially powerful tool to better understand marine fish populations. With that in mind, the South Atlantic Fishery Management Council's Citizen Science Program has partnered with the Atlantic Coastal Cooperative Statistics Program and the North Carolina Division of Marine Fisheries to develop a mobile application that encourages and supports the capture and sharing of information about Atlantic coast fish. The town hall meetings will be interactive to gain insights from stakeholders including fishermen, fisheries scientists, and fisheries managers. Interested participants will only need to attend one of the two meetings.

Items of discussion at the town hall meetings are as follows:

1. Project introduction

2. Brainstorm and discuss insights from participants to identify what they consider to be the most useful information that could be captured and generated by a citizen science mobile application.

The meeting end times are subject to change depending on attendance and discussions.

Special Accommodations

These meetings are physically accessible to people with disabilities. Requests for auxiliary aids should be directed to the Council office (see ADDRESSES) 5 days prior to the meeting.


The times and sequence specified in this agenda are subject to change.
