PLEASE ATTEND! October 18TH, 2014 Managing New York Ocean Resources: Connecting Science and Policy

As directed by the National Ocean Policy, Regional and New York Ocean Action Plans and Ocean Assessments are being drafted that will protect and guide our management of marine resources for now and for the future. The New York Marine Sciences Consortium will host a meeting to gather input from the scientific community, policy makers, other stakeholders and the general public to inform these action plans and assessments. Your input from the conference will be used to develop recommendations and identify critical knowledge gaps regarding ocean-related human uses, natural resources, and cultural factors. The NY Marine Sciences Consortium will use this information to produce a meeting report that will be presented to NY State and to the Mid-Atlantic Regional Council on the Oceans to guide development of the Action Plans and Assessments. The action plans and assessments are critically important as they will help maximize the benefits of our ocean resources and protect the health of the ecosystem.

For more information, please visit the Annual Conference page.

We want your input to help facilitate our discussions and plan our day.  Your  responses and ideas will be used to help guide our break-out sessions and for the meeting report.  Please use our online questionnaire to RSVP for the conference and provide feedback.

Undergraduate and Graduate Students: Submit your poster titles using this form by October 10th
