The Effects of Shark Depredation on Recreational Fisheries: Anglers are increasingly reporting losing sportfish to sharks, prior to landing or just after release. This is especially true in Florida’s saltwater fisheries. A panel of experts and charter captains will discuss what’s happening, possible reasons, and what might be done to address it.

Offshore Energy Development: Generating additional sources of sustainable, low-carbon energy will be key to addressing climate change, and this currently includes the installation of offshore wind turbines. But how does installation of these semi-permanent structures affect offshore fishing?
