Technical Assistance and Capacity Building (TAC)

TAC Oyster

As a part of its Technical Assistance and Capacity Building work, the MBNEP helps market Alabama oysters across the country by linking oystermen and oyster farmers to restaurants and distributors through (Pictured: Admiral Shellfish Company)

MBNEP provides technical assistance and supports efforts to increasethe scientific knowledge, technical capacity, and skills of elected officials, businesses, and other groups to promote best practices and management of Alabama’s estuaries and coast. A three-pronged approach of identifying environmental issues impacting business and government, educating and promoting the use of environmentally sound business practices, and recommending coastal management priorities and regulatory improvements provide the foundation for the work of the Business Resources, Community Resources and Government Networks committees who lead these efforts.
