The goal of the Third International Symposium on Mangroves as Fish Habitat is to bring together scientists, researchers, industry professionals, economists, educators, and government officials, with the goal of “Connecting the Hemispheres.” 

Decades of research on the function of mangroves as fish habitat have found that there maybe differeing processes occuring in the Eastern and Western hemispheres. Whether it be driven by differences in tides, evolutionary histories, or differing species life-histories, there is an uncertainty about the global role that mangroves play as critical habitat in the new vs old worlds.

This symposium aims to examine the relationships between fishes and mangroves in each hemisphere, to identify gaps in our knowledge, and to chart a course for future global research on mangroves as fish habitat.

Abstracts are due by 1st September, 2018.

Early registration ends on 1st October, 2018.
