A new team to emerge from GOMA’s 2015 restructure is the Wildlife and Fisheries Team. The Wildlife and Fisheries Team focuses on living coastal and marine resources and other biological objectives.
The Team has two goals:
- Work to understand and support diverse wildlife and fisheries populations to sustain a resilient Gulf of Mexico ecosystem
- Inform conservation and policy decision makers through collaboration with the other Gulf of Mexico Alliance teams
The GOMA Wildlife and Fisheries Team is led by the State of Texas, but has active participation from all five Gulf States and federal agencies working in the region, as well as academia, businesses, and non-profit organizations. Learn more about the Team’s focus areas and actions in Action Plan III.
