Working on the Water

In Louisiana, there is a long tradition of working on the water — the water is part of who we are. Given the volatility of the economy and the hurdles we have had to overcome — from oil spills and hurricanes, to coastal erosion and changing ecosystems — it is important that our people are able to adapt and prosper.

Working on the Water (WOW) has been designed to do just that. The Meraux Foundation is the presenting sponsor of WOW, which is an initiative of the St. Bernard Economic Development Foundation.

The program helps inform fishermen on how they can use their unique skills to explore new work opportunities in three key areas: coastal restoration, disaster recovery, and ecotourism. WOW gathers experts from across the region and country to share their experiences and insight into how fishermen can take advantage of opportunities in each of these three information areas.
