In progress is "Vocational-Technical Institute Development Program for Commercial Fisheries." A newsletter has been distributed to 600 educators periodically.

The Unit director participated in the New England Regional Research Coordinating Unit conference and in the development of a regional research proposal, and wrote the research section of the State Plan. In addition to an account of activities and accomplishments, the document presents an historical perspective, a statement of objectives, and a sample newsletter. (JK)
