2016 SEAC Workshop
In March 2016, more than 50 scientists and members of industry gathered at the Florida Fish and Wildlife Research Institute in St. Petersburg, Florida for presentations, discussions, and hands-on gear demonstrations, with research and technological innovation themes centered around the SEAC objectives. Two days of talks were kicked off by keynote speaker Steve Murawski, University of South Florida College of Marine Science. Live demonstrations occurred on the third day and featured several sonars, an autonomous vehicle, and a tour of the University of South Florida’s research vessel Weatherbird II.
The SEAC remains thankful for broad support received from agencies, universities, and industry partners, including CSA Ocean Sciences, Echoview, Florida International University, Klein Associates, Kongsberg Maritime Simrad, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, North Carolina Sea Grant, QPS, and our hosts at the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
