Program Leadership

Leer en Español

As a fundamentally collaborative effort, the program in each region is guided by the MREP Caribbean steering committee, consisting of members from across the fishery community, scientists, managers, and educators. MREP Caribbean is administered by the Gulf of Maine Research Institute and delivered by the program planning team, which handles all aspects of program design and communications.
