The Sarasota Bay Fisheries Forum — a group for anglers, scientists and others seeking to proactively address fisheries management and science topics in the Sarasota Bay area — is gearing up for its October meeting.

During the meeting attendees will hear from Damon Moore, an Environmental Program Manager as he discusses how The Robinson Preserve Expansion Project will include juvenile snook habitat provisions and their benefits.

Damon Moore is an Environmental Program Manager with the Manatee County Parks and Natural Resources Department with over ten years of experience designing, permitting and implementing local coastal habitat restoration projects. Moore’s primary focus includes projects that improve juvenile snook habitat from former coastal uplands.

The free, public Fisheries Forum meeting will take place from 6-8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 12, in the WAVE Center at Mote, 1600 Ken Thompson Parkway on City Island, Sarasota, FL 34236.

The Sarasota Bay Fisheries Forum is an independent, community discussion designed to help inform fisheries management and science.
