Managing Our Nation's Fisheries (MONF)

In early 2002 the eight Regional Fishery Management Councils, and the leadership within NOAA Fisheries (NMFS), decided that the time had come for a national conference to provide a forum to assess the status of our marine fisheries management programs, at a national and regional level. In addition to recognizing the successes of our management program, the conference would provide an opportunity to explore potential improvements to national fishery management policy. This conference would be the first in a series of Managing our Nation's Fisheries (MONF) conferences co-sponsored by the eight Regional Fishery Management Councils and NOAA Fisheries, partners in the management of our nation’s fisheries.
