C-CAN OA-Shellfish Workshop August 2012

(Click on presenters for powerpoint presentations. Click on video here at the end of each session to watch the program.)

Objectives

To develop a roadmap for integrating ocean acidification observing activities on the US West Coast that ensures balanced participation of academic, governmental, and commercial stakeholders.

In particular, these workshops aim to articulate a strategy for implementing a sustainable observing system for ocean acidification that will be able to address the needs of the shellfish industry as well as of broader fisheries management stakeholders along the West Coast, in addition to those of the academic research community.

Dates

This workshop was held in La Jolla, California August 27-28, 2012

Summary

This is the third workshop supported by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, with the principal goal of developing a roadmap for integrating ocean acidification observing activities on the US west coast, involving participation of academic, government and commercial stakeholders.

This workshop presented reports from workshops held in July and December 2011, outlined a recommended observing strategy for C-CAN based on earlier discussion, and discussed how to implement the monitoring plan, articulating challenges and possible solutions.
