The Marine Industries Association of the Treasure Coast recently hosted marine leaders from around Florida for discussions on how to make the industry stronger.

The associations, according to the group, are concerned about the economy and state and federal regulations they say make recreational boating difficult. They also discussed the development of a marine center of excellence to train the industry work force.

They would like to help members get affordable insurance as a long-term goal, according to the association.

The gathering last week included representatives from the Marine Industries Association of Palm Beach County; the Marine Industries Association of Collier County, the Northwest Florida Marine Industries Association; the Jacksonville Marine Association; the Marine Industries Association of South Florida; and the Florida Yacht Brokers Association.

The Treasure Coast group represents the industry in Martin, St. Lucie, Indian River and Okeechobee counties.
