Fishing families workshop June 9th in Juneau

Attention fishermen: a fishing families workshop will be held on Friday, June 9th in Ballroom 3 in Centennial Hall at 5:15 pm in Juneau.

"The purpose of the workshop is to identify areas of future research on fishing family dynamics that are most relevant and important to fishing participants in the North Pacific and to preliminarily capture viewpoints on these issues. We will discuss several key themes at the workshop including family roles and gender division of labor; the impacts of management, environmental, and socioeconomic conditions on these roles; and the future of fishing families and women in Alaska's fisheries. Following the workshop, we will provide participants with a summary of the major themes that we heard at the workshop. This will provide you with another opportunity to clarify your viewpoint and to offer more information."
