Responsible Stewardship of New Jersey's Valuable Marine Resources On January 20th, join the LBIF and Dr. Doug Zemeckis via Zoom as he discusses Valuable Marine Resources. New Jersey is very well known for the Jersey Shore and all that our marine ecosystems have to offer, such as providing recreational opportunities, supporting local tourism, and sustaining numerous marine related industries. The sustainability of our marine resources depends on responsible stewardship practices among stakeholders. This presentation will provide an overview of New Jersey's marine ecosystems and the associated fishing and aquaculture industries with an emphasis on the practices and activities with which citizens in Ocean County and throughout New Jersey can get involved to be responsible stewards of our marine resources. Dr. Douglas Zemeckis serves as a County Agent II (Associate Professor) with Rutgers Cooperative Extension. In this role, he conducts educational programming and applied research on issues related to fisheries, aquaculture, and marine resource management. His efforts focus on Ocean, Atlantic, and Monmouth Counties, but also includes working on issues throughout New Jersey.
