GCFI is pleased to announce that the 73rd annual meeting of the Gulf and Caribbean Fisheries Institute (GCFI73) is being run as an entirely virtual event. GCFI73 will be a mix of science and fun activities comprised of an e-poster session, invited talks, workshops, a Speed Science Student Competition, a GCFI Story Slam, and the CINEFISH Film Festival. It is the intention of GCFI to provide the current state of the science while also infusing entertaining elements into the event.
This innovative way of connecting with our membership from around the Caribbean and the globe will provide an opportunity for scientists, managers, students, government officials and other stakeholders to share new research, experiences and case studies. This virtual approach will not only include some of the special events you know and love in new formats but it will also allow participants to gather and discuss information while networking with their peers during the COVID-19 pandemic.
