This is a special workshop at the Gulf & Caribbean Fisheries Institute 69th annual conference. Note: Participants must also register with GCFI. Visit the conference website for more information: http://www.gcfi.org/Conferences/69th/GrandCayman_en.html

The GCFI annual conference is an ideal platform for the exchange of science and discussion of ideas, and offers an opportunity to reinforce regional collaboration on a variety of environmental and social issues.  This workshop will bring together GCFI attendees and interested local and regional stakeholders to discuss information needs on the topic of regional connectivity and oil spills. Emerging science and information about oil spills is pertinent to multiple Gulf and Caribbean countries, as energy infrastructure develops throughout the region. Sea Grant aims to collect information needs, questions, topics of interest, and issues related to oil spills, from participants at this workshop.  Information collected will be the basis for development of future outreach products for distribution to participants at the workshop and to audiences across the region. Participants will have the opportunity to have their voice heard, to ask questions, and to provide input on informational products and programs that would be most useful to them.  With this input, Sea Grant address identified needs and continue to support multi-national collaboration across the region.
