Monterey Bay Aquarium And Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute To Host Eighth Deep-Sea Biology Symposium

September 05, 1997

An international symposium cosponsored by the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) and the Monterey Bay Aquarium will feature more than 150 scientific presentations on the deep sea. The symposium will be held September 22 through September 26 at the aquarium's oceanside setting in Monterey, California. The goal of the organizers is to bring together all members of the international deep-sea research community to share their latest findings on the biology and ecology of the deep sea.

Scientists from eighteen countries around the world will participate in sessions focused on the following subjects:
Print and broadcast media are welcome to cover the symposium. However, due to the limited capacity of aquarium conference facilities and ongoing aquarium visitor activities, representatives of the press must pre-register for admission as soon as possible with Kelly Burgess.
