Meetings Other Relevant Events
The 74th Annual Gulf and Caribbean Fisheries Institute (GCFI74) will be held between the 8-12 November 2021 in Destin – Fort Walton Beach (Florida, USA).
14th September 2021 – For the last year, the GCFI team has been following the status of COVID with the intention of holding an in-person meeting this November. However, rather than abating, the COVID delta variant has been spreading and Florida is one of the epicenters. For this reason, regretfully we have taken the difficult decision to cancel the in-person component of what we planned to be a hybrid in-person/virtual event. Our primary consideration has always been the health of our community and this drove our decision to cancel the in-person conference. The results of our online survey further reinforced this decision since over 60% of respondents indicated that they would no longer attend given the current conditions.
