Thanks for your interest in REEF Fish & Friends! We are pleased to welcome our May 2023 speaker, Catherine Uden, Field Representative of Oceana.

Catherine works on US federal policies to protect the world’s oceans, including fisheries laws, North Atlantic right whale protections, offshore drilling legislation, and a bill to ban the sale and trade of shark fins in the US. She also helps pass legislation to reduce single-use plastics on the local, state, and federal levels. She will discuss plastic pollution and how Floridians can take action.


REEF Fish & Friends is a free, monthly seminar series that features engaging ocean-themed presentations from guest speakers. Snorkelers, divers, and marine life enthusiasts are invited to join informal discussions and mingle with members of our friendly, ocean-minded community. Complimentary light refreshments are provided. The evening kicks off with a social from 6:15-7pm, followed by a presentation from 7-8pm. Seminars are also live-streamed on REEF's Facebook page and YouTube channel.
