You are invited to attend a Hill briefing on the topic: What future do we want for our oceans? Please join the Don’t Cage Our Ocean Coalition on Wednesday, June 23 from 2-3 pm Eastern time for a panel discussion with stakeholders who will share their experiences fighting to protect the health of our oceans for tomorrow’s generations. What are the current threats and what future do we want for our oceans and coastal communities? Should offshore finfish aquaculture be a part of that future? We will also provide an opportunity for Q&A with our panelists.
