2023 Chesapeake Oyster Science Symposium
Thursday, October 26, 2023 (10:30 AM - 4:00 PM) (EDT)
Partners of the Chesapeake Oyster Alliance (COA) invite you to attend the 2023 Chesapeake Oyster Science Symposium, where the fields of oyster restoration, aquaculture, and research converge to explore cutting-edge innovation and collaboration in the oyster world.
The Symposium will be broadcast live over Zoom from the Hyatt Regency in Cambridge, MD, on Thursday, October 26th from 10:30 am - 4:00 pm EST.
Registration is free for all virtual attendees, with an optional donation to support COA’s oyster work. The program is designed for all oyster practitioners and those considering entering the fields of oyster restoration, aquaculture, or research. We welcome under- and post- graduate students, non-profit and governmental staff, oyster growers, watermen, business owners and the many others invested in the recovery of the Chesapeake Bay oyster.
Participants will hear from an all-star lineup of oyster experts, academic faculty, and industry practitioners across multiple panel discussions in a dynamic format, featuring over 20 speakers, with succinct presentations and ample Q&A around each topic.
The Symposium will also host a round of “lightning talks” by young scientists and early career professionals (attendees may self-select to present when they register). While the Symposium will be focused on emerging science and innovative approaches to advance the oyster population of Chesapeake Bay, we welcome attendees from all locations (e.g., the East, Gulf, and West Coasts, and international audiences).
We hope that you’ll join us and help us spread the word by sharing this announcement with your colleagues and fellow oyster enthusiasts!
