Program Leadership

MREP is a fundamentally collaborative effort. As such, an MREP board of advisors guides the program in each region. This group includes members from across the fishery community, scientists, managers, and educators. MREP is administered by GMRI and is delivered by the program implementation team, which handles all aspects of program design and communications.
