New Jersey Sea Grant Consortium and North Atlantic Regional Team, or NART, will host an ocean and coastal acidification workshop August 11 for stakeholders in the Garden State. This event is hosted by Stockton University, and is supported by NOAA James J. Howard Marine Sciences Laboratory, Rutgers’ Haskin Shellfish Research Laboratory and Aquaculture Innovation Center, and Delaware Sea Grant.

The day will include an overview presentation on the state of the science of ocean and coastal acidification, presentations from local industry representatives, and breakout sessions to hear more about changes you are seeing on the water, and on what issues and problems scientists and officials should focus their attention in the near future.

The workshop is free, but space is limited to the first 50 people who register.


The purpose of this workshop is for stakeholders (e.g., fishing, aquaculture, water quality/marine resources management/NGO) to become informed about coastal ocean acidification: what it is, how it happened and what it could mean for the future of aquaculture and fishing in New Jersey and the mid-Atlantic and how to address it.
