Seventh Shallow Water Science and Management Conference

  • Resources
  • Shoreline Protection
  • Conflicting Uses
  • Water Resources
  • Fisheries

The dates of this Conference have been changed!  We will now meet the 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.

 7th Coastal & Estuarine Shallow Water Science & Management Conference

Join us in Atlantic City September 25-27, 2006 for the Seventh Coastal & Estuarine Shallow Water Science & Management Conference.  Based on the abstracts submitted the conference theme will be the interrelationship between shallow water  habitats, water quality and adjacent land use.  Although presentations in these areas will predominate, there are a host of other interesting topics.  Please join us at the Holiday Inn-Boardwalk in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

The Conference will be held in Atlantic City.

The Seventh Shallow Water Science and Management Conference will be held at the Holiday Inn-Boardwalk in Atlantic City on the Boardwalk at Chelsea Ave.  A block of rooms has been reserved for conference attendees.  You should register directly with the Holiday Inn (code: SWC).  A special room rate has been arranged for these rooms on the beach in Atlantic City that includes a hot luncheon on the day after your first nights stay.  When you contact the Holiday Inn be certain to mention that you are with The Shallow Water group (code: SWC) to get the special rate, and to help us with the expenses of this meeting.  The room rates are:
