The Gulf of Mexico Alliance is making big plans for the 2016 All Hands meeting. It is being held June 14-17, 2016, in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. This year the meeting will include a Tools Cafe' and a showing of the Planet Earth Film, "Dispatches from the Gulf”.
It’s May, which means that research projects are starting to heat up. Two projects initiated on the Gulf Coast involve tagged seafood and money. Female blue crabs and delicious red snapper are being studied. Fishermen who are a lucky enough to catch the tagged seafood could earn between $5 and $500.
