As 2020 winds down, we asked staff members at Wisconsin Sea Grant what their favorite project was this year. Although work was a bit more challenging than usual due to our altered work circumstances, everyone managed to stay productive, and even find fulfillment. Although Sharon Moen, our Eat Wisconsin Fish outreach specialist, hasn’t been working here that long, she wanted to contribute to this blog series.

Sharon said, “I dissected the Eat Wisconsin Fish initiative soon after I was hired to manage it in November. Laying the innards out on the metaphorical table and studying their functions informed strategies for working with commercial fishers, fish farmers and the public in 2021. Eat Wisconsin Fish activities support food security, economic and environmental health, and the overall well-being of the people of Wisconsin.”
