This two day workshop, cosponsored by Alaska Sea Grant and the Alaska Ocean Observing System (AOOS), has the goal of developing an action plan for harmful algal bloom (HAB) monitoring, event response, outreach and research in Alaska. The first day is intended to engage a broad audience, including resource managers, shellfish growers, researchers, and anyone affected or interested in HABs. This first day will include presentations to provide an overview and summary of HAB-related activities around Alaska as well as breakout groups to develop an action plan related to monitoring and event response. The second day will engage a targeted audience that is interested in developing an action plan for HAB research, data sharing, outreach and education. Participants may register for the first day only or for both days. Registration is free.
