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.

4. Develop, update and disseminate MarketMaker training materials for fisheries and marine-related establishments, regulators, marketing, and research/extension faculty and staff — Mississippi MarketMaker Newsletter.

5. Conduct Mississippi MarketMaker training workshops for fisheries and marine-related establishments, regulators, marketing, and research/extension faculty and staff — Mississippi MarketMaker Workshops.

These outreach activities were completed on time with so much assistance from the members of the Mississippi MarketMaker Team at MSU-Coastal Research and Extension Center.
