The Blue Economy Symposium is a collaboration between the City of Fort Bragg and California Sea Grant focusing on exploring the needs and potential for developing a resilient and vibrant blue economy in and around Fort Bragg. This symposium will bring together local, state and federal agencies  to develop pathways forward for the community. The first day of the symposium will focus on city and harbor infrastructure needs, discussions with commercial/ recreational fishers and associated businesses about sustainable fishing economies, then followed by education, entrepreneurship and job force training considerations. The second day will explore the potential of developing an aquaculture park in the region. Speakers will present information on different aspects of current and potential aquaculture activities elsewhere in California that are restorative and/or commercial in nature. It is said that a rising tide lifts all boats… thank you for participating in this important conversation.
