My colleagues and I are convening a town hall meeting on dynamic ocean management at the Ocean Science meeting on Feb 12th, 12:45-1:45pm.
Given the focus of your organized session, we think this might be of interest to you and your speakers and we were hoping you might be willing to share this invitation with your speakers/colleagues.
The intent of the town hall is to initiate dialogue and conversations among the ocean science community of managers, scientists, industry and resource users, and policy makers to discuss opportunities, challenges and potential solutions to adoption and implementation of dynamic ocean management. The town hall will also feature current and in-development dynamic ocean management applications.
A flyer/invite is copied below with more info and RSVP details. Please share and don't hesitate if you have any questions. We hope to see you there!

Join the conversation about dynamic ocean management!
Dynamic ocean management is an emerging approach to ocean management that relies on current data to guide the temporal and spatial distribution of resource and oceanscape use. Developed to address a fundamental challenge – how to balance economic viability with ecological sustainability– and fueled by advances in remote sensing, archival tagging, hand-held technology, and species-distribution modelling, dynamic ocean management approaches provide critical information to ocean users and managers on changing ocean conditions and ecosystems.
Come to the town hall to:
-Learn about new applications of dynamic ocean management from around the
-Engage with the ocean science community (managers, scientists, industry and resource users, and policy makers) to discuss opportunities, challenges and potential solutions to widespread adoption and implementation of dynamic ocean management.
-Share your expertise and explore new ideas on the future of dynamic ocean management
