Early bird registration is now available.

The 12th U.S. Symposium on Harmful Algae will take place in Portland, Maine on Oct. 27 – Nov. 1. Serving as the only national conference focused exclusively on harmful algal blooms (HABs), the event brings together national representatives and researchers from academia state, federal, tribal, and municipal governments; the private sector; and watershed organizations.

The symposium theme is “ONE BLOOM: Unifying HAB Science in Aquatic Ecosystems.” Sessions and discussions will identify and highlight commonalities across diverse study systems and disciplines within harmful algal bloom research. Presentations and panel discussions will include topics such as HAB management, mitigation, and control; emerging toxins and species; public health and risk management; and HABs across the freshwater-marine continuum.

Early bird registration will remain open through July 19. Final registration closes on Sept. 20. To register and learn more visit the symposium webpage.

NEIWPCC is coordinating the symposium with support from the U.S. National Office for Harmful Algal Blooms at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and the U.S. Geological Survey.
