Seventh Shallow Water Science and Management Conference
The dates of this Conference have been changed! We will now meetthe week of September 25-27, 2006.
The Shallow Water Science and Management Conference Series.
The first three Shallow Water Conferences focused on defining the gatheringís namesake, the very thing that the participants were determined to protect. The shallow water zone is defined as the zone of maximum interaction between humans and critical biological resources - the intertidal zone to four meters below Mean Low Water. Shallow Water meetings since then have dealt with specific issues in this important resource area. It has been five years since the last Shallow Water Meeting, and a number of factors have indicated to the organizers that the time has come for another gathering.
