GCFI is pleased to announce that the 74th annual meeting of the Gulf and Caribbean Fisheries Institute (GCFI 74) will be held in Fort Walton Beach, Florida from 8 – 12 November 2021 at The Island Hotel. GCFI is partnering with the Okaloosa County, the Destin – Fort Walton Beach Convention Center and Visitor Bureau to host GCFI74.

We intend to host a hybrid in-person event in Florida with options for virtual participation. We are monitoring the status of COVID19 within the region and the safety of our GCFI Family is our priority. Thus if the status of the pandemic changes, and it is no longer safe to host an in-person meeting, a fully virtual event will be convened.

Regardless of the format, we encourage everyone who is interested in participating to submit an abstract.
