International Invasive Sea Squirt Conference III - Woods Hole

April 26-28, 2010
Invasive ascidians are impacting ecosystems, creating a nuisance for the aquaculture industry, and are a major component of fouling communities. The aim of the third conference is to further address the continuing problems associated with invasive species of tunicates.

International Invasive Sea Squirt Conference II - Canada

October 2-4, 2007
Invasive ascidians are impacting ecosystems, creating a nuisance for the aquaculture industry, and are a major component of fouling communities. The aim of this second conference is to further address the continuing problems associated with invasive species of tunicates.

Science and Action: Cooperation in Marine Conservation

Dates to be announced in 2007
A workshop to develop connections between basic research in ocean sciences and effective conservation and management action.

International Invasive Sea Squirt Conference I - Woods Hole

April 21-22, 2005
Invasive ascidians are impacting ecosystems, creating a nuisance for the aquaculture industry, and are a major component of fouling communities. The aim of this conference was to bring together marine biologists and other people concerned with invasive ascidians, to explore the biology, ecology, impacts, management options for control, and other relevant topics.

Deep Sea Fisheries

September 12-14, 2004
A Fisheries, Oceanography and Society Symposium
Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and New England Aquarium

This Symposium convened experts on deep-sea species and habitats targeted by emerging fisheries. Topics included ecology and biology of seamounts, canyons and deep-sea fishes, technology and economics of deep-sea fishing, conservation and regulation. Its intended audience was marine biologists, fishery scientists, the fishing and seafood industries, conservation groups, economists and policy makers.

Sensors Workshop

July 13-16, 2003
This workshop seeks to bring together oceanographers and specialists in new and emerging technologies which could be used for the in situ oceanographic biological and chemical measurements of the future.

Right Whale Lecture Series

July to August 2003
View webcasts from the Endangered North Atlantic Right Whale Lecture Series.

Endangered North Atlantic Right Whale Forum

November 6 and 7, 2003
The goals of the Ocean Forum were to assess what we know and need to know about the North Atlantic Right Whale's predicament and to devise collaborative, multi-pronged research strategies to catalyze advances in knowledge and enhance conservation efforts.

NE Oceanography Seminar Series

February to June 2002
The New England Oceanography Seminar Series explored marine and environmental issues particular to the New England region. This is a joint effort sponsored by the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, School of Marine Science and Technology, and WHOI's Ocean Life Institute and Coastal Ocean Institute.

Marine Protected Areas

August 27-29, 2001
A Fisheries, Oceanography and Society Symposium
Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution

Growing concern about declining fisheries, habitat degradation and loss of marine species has led to increased discussion and advocacy of marine protected areas (MPAs) as part of the solution to these environmental, social and economic problems. Like parks, preserves, and wilderness areas on land, marine protected areas can provide populations, species and habitats with varying degrees of protection from exploitation or degradation.

The Symposia on Fisheries, Oceanography and Society are made possible by the generous support of Mr. and Mrs. Eugene Kummel.
