2020 Meeting

Crossing boundaries and navigating intersections

In order to advance our understanding and management of fisheries and aquatic ecosystems we will need to boldly cross boundaries and navigate intersections – we will need to go where we have not gone before.  Boundaries are divides that may include technology, methodology, mindsets, disciplines, environments, borders, politics, communications, values and the like.  Intersections represent pathways where these often-separate factors converge.  This meeting will highlight the myriad and successful ways boundaries have been crossed and intersections navigated in fisheries and aquatic sciences to achieve desired outcomes. A special focus will be given on generating outcomes from the diversity of symposia presented.  Outcomes may include publications, proposals, recommendations, agreements, identification or clarification of uncertainties, and other action items.  Generating outcomes within our meeting will leverage collective talent and help us to cross boundaries and navigate intersections for the betterment of our fisheries profession and advancement of aquatic culture.
