This is the third national symposium on issues faced by working waterfronts throughout the United States, where increased coastal population is generating increasing conflicts over access to and uses of waterfronts.
The symposium is expected to draw local, regional, tribal and national decision-makers; members of the commercial fishing, marine, and tourism industries, developers and property owners; business owners, community planners and waterfront advocates .
Session topics will include discussions about:
- Economic and social impacts of and on working waterfronts
- Successful local, regional, state and federal Strategies to address working waterfront issues
- The future of working waterfronts: Changing uses and changing climate
- Keeping waterfront industries commercially viable
