Marine Economics

Marine resource and fisheries management, seafood production and marketing, sustainable aquaculture production, and coastal water quality are all important topics in the State of Florida and more broadly. FRED researchers work together as part of multidisciplinary teams to study issues important to Florida’s marine-dependent industries and marine resource managers at the state, federal, and global levels. FRED research and extension programs are working to protect marine resources, improve the sustainability of seafood production, and maximizes marine recreational opportunities in Florida and beyond.
