Webinar Recording: "Florida's Shrimp Fishery"

Did you know shrimp are Florida's most valuable and popular seafood commodity?
Yesterday my colleagues and I completed our 3rd session of our Florida Seafood Brown Bag Webinar Series-"Florida's Shrimp Fishery." The goals of the presentation were to: 1.Increase audience's knowledge of the characteristics associated with the different kinds of shrimp harvested in Florida, 2. Enhance their understanding of how the shrimp fishery is managed in Florida, and 3. Provide participants with nutrition, purchasing, and handling information to make them more informed consumers.

* Just to let you know during the presentation I try showing some video footage of how a turtle excluder device works, but it does not work. I apologize about this! If you'd like to see the correct footage you can go to the link to the University of Georgia Marine Extension Service provided at the end of the presentation!
