  • Continue to support effective marine educational opportunities.
  • Continuing the ongoing speakers series and developing new and exciting topics along with supporting educational field trips for high school and elementary students
  • Establishing a way in which the salmon genetics task can utilize the money awarded and still provide a satisfactory deliverable.
