Thursday, March 4, 2021. 6:30 PM. Webinar: Hooked on Ocean Acidification: Ocean Acidification and Shellfish: Can Seagrasses Provide a Local Solution? Emily Rivest, Virginia Institute of Marine Science. Sponsored by the Mid-Atlantic Coastal Acidification Network (MACAN) and the Mid-Atlantic Regional Association for Coastal Ocean Observing Systems (MARACOOS). More information here.
Are you curious about what ocean acidification (OA) is? Are you curious about what a more acidic ocean could mean for the fish you target? Would you like to learn how seagrass plantings can buffer changes in water chemistry and help with oyster reef restoration? Are you eager to try out a new app that provides short-term forecasts for pH and hypoxia in coastal waters? If so, we'd like to invite you to join us for a new virtual educational mini-series, Hooked on Ocean Acidification. During four Thursday evening sessions, we'll provide you with the latest scientific research and mobile apps to understand how ocean acidification may affect your local fisheries and what can be done to reduce the impacts.
