Students, faculty, staff and community members gathered for  the second Coastal Conversations event held on Tuesday, August 28, 2018 on the campus of Nunez Community College. The discussion centered around assisting commerical fishermen with growing their business through means such as bookkeeping, effective distribution and marketing.  Speakers for the evening included David Huff, Dominique Seibert and Tyler Ortego.

"Nunez's first class of Crane Operator students also attended the seminar, learned about coastal projects, and connected with potential employers.", said Martin Mantz, Coastal Restoration Program Manager at Nunez.

Coastal Conversations  are made possible through a grant from the St. Bernard Parish Government. For more information, email Martin Mantz at mmantz@nunez.edu or call 504-278-6295.
