The Fisheries Leadership Project
The Fisheries Leadership Project is an extension of Northwest Fisheries Association’s scholarship fund initially funded by Hugh Reilly, 2017 NWFA Person of the Year. The mission of FLP is to present the diverse aspects and opportunities of the Northwest fishing industry to the younger generation. FLP applicants will participants in sessions throughout the year and will “graduate” at the Pacific Marine Expo in Seattle. The sessions will include touring fishing vessels, processing and R&D facilities, drydocks and shipyards, cold storage facilities, and much more in Seattle. There is no fee to participate and the program is open to all applicants interested in learning more about the maritime and fishing industry.
