The Resilient Fisheries RI List-Serv is open to all members of Rhode Island's fishing industry: captains, crew, shoreside businesses, dealers, and other support services. It is a place for discussion, collaboration, and notification about upcoming opportunities to advance the resilience of Rhode Island's fisheries. Members of the fishing industry are defined as all those with a financial dependence on the harvest of wild fishery resources in Rhode Island, or those who work directly for them. If you are not a member of the fishing industry and would like to learn more about the Resilient Fisheries RI communication platform, please contact
