Call for Abstracts
The call for abstracts is closed.
Presenters are asked to present their current/new research findings, provide updates on the status of marine resources, highlight decadal changes, identify integrated studies, and discuss industry/public collaborations. The audience will include a diverse and inquisitive public including fishermen, merchants, resource users, resource managers, scientists, students, and boaters.
People want to know why they are seeing certain population trends, what studies are occurring in their backyard, and what changes they might expect as the climate continues to change. This is a chance for researchers to present their results to an audience eager for information about the marine resources that surround their community and form the basis of the local economy.
To maximize the audience’s viewing opportunity, oral presentations will be limited to 20 minutes (15 minute talk plus 5 minutes for questions and answers), delivered in plenary sessions. Posters will remain displayed throughout the conference. We will have space for a large number of posters.
