Northeast Aquatic Biologists Workgroup

In 2018, NEIWPCC formed a new workgroup for aquatic environmental biologists (NAB Transition Statement).

This workgroup, comprised of state and federal staff from New England and New York, meet twice a year to share knowledge and information with one another and to open dialogue for potential regional collaboration.  Workgroup meetings provide NEIWPCC’s member states the opportunity to share challenges, offer solutions, and discuss the current topics of their field.

Annually, the Northeast Aquatic Biologists (NAB) Conference is cooperatively organized by the workgroup through a planning team consisting of representation from all NEIWPCC member states as well as EPA.  The NAB Conference provides a forum for a professional exchange of expertise, research, and scientific achievements among not only state and federal staff, but also academia, the private sector, watershed organizations, and other professionals.

Through a continued tradition of bringing together the diverse scientific community of the Northeast, the conference as well as the workgroup seek to develop and sustain a regional network of biologists.

Reminder: The Northeast Aquatic Biologists Conference will be held March 4-6, 2020, in Newport, RI.
