For the past four years, I have spent most of my Tuesday mornings primarily for the Mississippi MarketMaker (MS-MM) Outreach consisting of personal contacts, websites, online newsletter and social media networks.
1. Provide an electronic database of seafood establishments, farmers markets, for-hire charter boats, restaurants, processors, retail stores and other seafood establishments in coordination with the National MarketMaker Program and the Gulf of Mexico (GOM) Seafood Marketing Coalition — Mississippi MarketMaker website.
2. Increase listings and registrations and encourage updates of online profiles of fisheries and marine-related establishments at the Mississippi MarketMaker website — Mississippi MarketMaker website.
3. Develop and maintain Mississippi MarketMaker social media networks in coordination with the National MarketMaker Program and the GOM Seafood Marketing Coalition.
