Agenda & Sessions:
The National Working Waterfronts & Waterways Symposium is the crown jewel of the National Working Waterfront Network. People from across the United States attend the symposium to connect with one another and showcase (and initiate) innovative solutions to their waterfront issues. The ultimate goal of the symposium, and the Network, is to increase the capacity of saltwater- and freshwater-based coastal communities and for stakeholders to make informed decisions, balance diverse uses, ensure access, and plan for the future of their working waterfronts. Working waterfronts include waterfront lands, waterfront infrastructure, and waterways that are used for water-dependent activities, such as ports, marinas, small recreational boat harbors, fishing docks and hundreds of other places across the country where people use and access the water.
Retreat #3 — May 22-24, 2018
Skill Focus: Sharing Your Message with Communities
Application: Outreach and Research Design
2017-2018 LaDIA Fellows will explore the coast, in person and in detail. Skills are taught in the context of different coastal regions and their unique challenges.
The State of the Coast (SOC) Conference is the largest state-wide conference of its kind providing an interdisciplinary forum to exchange timely and relevant information on the dynamic conditions of Louisiana’s coastal communities, environment, and economy.
SOC18 will consist of two and a half days of presentations by leading experts in concurrent sessions, keynote presentations, poster sessions, and networking opportunities.
SOC18 will engage more than 1,000 scientists, landowners/managers, federal and state agency personnel, local officials, industry and business leaders, resource users, and interested citizens in attendance at the 5th iteration of this biennial conference. You won’t want to miss this conference!
The 4th International Symposium will bring together experts from around the world to better understand climate impacts on ocean ecosystems – and how to respond.
The Symposium will:
- Highlight the latest information on how oceans are changing, what is at risk and how to respond;
- Identify key knowledge gaps;
- Promote collaborations; and
- Stimulate the next generation of science and actions
The Symposium will include:
- Great sessions, presentations, and posters
- Opportunities for pre- or post-meeting workshops
- Special events for early career scientists
- Sponsorship and Exhibit Opportunities
Key Topic Areas:
The Symposium is a great opportunity to share information, highlight activities, build partnerships and shape the future of this important field.
One objective for this Symposium is to present current research results and to facilitate the uptake of these new results in other analyses, including (but not restricted to) the 6th Assessment Report (AR6) of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). We plan a Special Volume of the ICES Journal of Marine Science and we expect that additional Special Volumes in peer-reviewed journals may emerging from this Symposium.
The Sanitation Control Procedures training is intended to assist the seafood industry in developing and implementing “Sanitation Control Procedures” as mandated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This regulation is commonly know as the “Seafood HACCP Regulation” which became effective December 18, 1997. Since this date, seafood processors have been required to ‘monitor’ sanitary control procedures used during processing in order to show their compliance with good sanitary conditions and practices.
The School of Nutrition and Food Sciences offers a one day Sanitation Control Procedures for Processing Fish and Fishery Products (SCP) training designed to educate seafood processors, packers, wholesales, importers, harvesters and warehouses about sanitation procedures. Participants who complete the course receive a certificate issued by AFDO, that fulfills the FDA requirements for seafood SCP training.
Training in Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) is mandated for the seafood processors by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Basic HACCP courses teach the principles of HACCP and empower processors to develop HACCP plans specific for each seafood product they handle or produce.
The School of Nutrition and Food Sciences offers a two and a half day basic Seafood HACCP training designed to educate seafood processors, packers, wholesales, importers, harvesters and warehouses about seafood safety. Participants who complete the course receive a certificate issued by AFDO, that fulfills the FDA requirements for seafood HACCP training.
