Started in 2021, this program aims to increase dialogue between scientists and commercial crabbers, build collaborative partnerships, and bridge respective knowledges by holding annual conversational events to share observations and questions. 

If you are interested in participating in one of these exchanges, please contact the Program Coordinator at to learn about when and where the next event is being held!

See a summary of the conversation at our 2022 event here

This program is inspired by and, based off of, the NOAA Oregon Sea Grant Scientists and Fishermen Exchange. Read about the successes and impact of their program here
