DARTMOUTH – University of Massachusetts Dartmouth’s School for Marine Science and Technology and the Massachusetts Division of Marine Fisheries have formed the Massachusetts Marine Fisheries Institute Advisory Council.

The creation of the advisory council affirms the institute’s mission as it moves forward in addressing critical issues related to local fisheries and fishing communities.
