The Chesapeake Oyster Alliance with support from the Chesapeake Bay Foundation is assembling an all-star lineup of oyster experts, post-docs, faculty, and industry practitioners for the 2023 Chesapeake Oyster Science Symposium. Multiple panel discussions featuring over 20 speakers are intended to offer succinct presentations and ample Q&A around each topic. The Symposium will also feature a round of lightning-talks by young scientists and early career professionals (attendees may self-select to present when they register) and frequent breaks to combat the dreaded “Zoom fatigue.”

The Chesapeake Oyster Science Symposium unites the fields of oyster restoration, aquaculture, and science to explore the potential for accelerating and maximizing the ecological and economic gains obtainable in each area.

The Symposium will be focused on emerging science and innovative approaches to advance the oyster population of Chesapeake Bay, but we welcome attendees from all locations (e.g., the East, Gulf, and West Coasts—and even other countries as we had last year). We have assembled an all-star roster of oyster experts, post-docs, faculty, and industry leaders to represent the work being done in the Bay.

Topics to include:

  • Emerging Technology and Techniques in Aquaculture and Restoration
  • Optimizing Oyster Restoration and Aquaculture Yields
  • Advances in Oyster Monitoring
  • Gaps and Future Needs in Oyster Research
  • Lightning Round of Current Oyster Graduate Studies
  • The Future of Oyster Restoration, Aquaculture, and Research in the Bay
  • And more!

*Graduate students who are interested in presenting during the 5-7 minute Lightning Round can sign up during registration.

Please join us and share this event widely with your networks! And by all means, let us know if you have any questions or suggestions for clever ways to promote the program among oyster practitioners.

The Chesapeake Oyster Science Symposium is presented by the many partners of the Chesapeake Oyster Alliance with support by the Chesapeake Bay Foundation.

Questions can be directed to Tanner Council.
