UVI Seminar to Offer Profile of V.I. Fishermen on Sept. 12
A seminar featuring a "Community Profile of Virgin Islands Fishermen" will be presented by Dr. Brent Stoffle at noon on Tuesday, Sept. 12, at the University of the Virgin Islands. Stoffle is an applied anthropologist at the Southeast Fisheries Science Center of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). He is working to have the Virgin Islands designated as a NOAA fishing community under the Magnuson-Stevens Act that governs fishing in U.S. waters.
