2004 Ocean Research Conference
Note: Abstract deadline is October 5, 2003.
The American Society of Limnology and Oceanography and The
Oceanography Society invite the submission of abstracts for oral and
poster presentations for the
2004 Ocean Research
Conference and to
the Special Session on Operational Fisheries Oceanography. February
15-20, 2004. Hawaii Convention Center, Honolulu, Hawaii. I call to
your attention a special session on Operational Fisheries
Meeting Sub-theme 8: Pacific Fisheries/Census of Marine Life
SS8.03: Operational Fisheries Oceanography
Organizer: Mitchell A. Roffer, Roffer's Ocean Fishing Forecasting
Service, Inc. (
This symposium will bring together fisheries scientists involved in
fisheries oceanography from both the public and private sectors.
There is a critical need to bring together fisheries oceanographers
from both sectors to exchange ideas, approaches, and experiences to
examine how to integrate operational fisheries oceanographic
information to improve fish stock assessments and policy. The
session will facilitate a comparison of the utility of different
data, analyses, and visualization tools. Please submit abstracts to
ASLO and to M Roffer (contacts above). A peer reviewed publication
will be derived from this special session.

TOS/ASLO 2004 OCEAN RESEARCH CONFERENCE will take place
February 15-20, 2004, Hawaii Convention Center, Honolulu, Hawaii.
There will be a special session called
"Developing Ecosystem-based Products
Ocean and Estuarine Management"
The abstract submission
date is October 5, 2003. If you would like to present at this
special session, please contact

would prefer a poster or a talk.
The session abstract is as follows:
The delivery of comprehensive information products and technologies
applicable to specific ocean and coastal management issues remains a
challenge for ocean science programs. In general, ecosystem studies
have been committed to producing data and information products such as
technical reports, peer-reviewed publications, data bases, and
numerical and conceptual models, with little consideration for their
relevance to management problems. This session will present results of
scientific studies that are directly applicable and transferable to
management issues. Contributions are sought that highlight prediction,
assessment, or hindcasting of ocean/estuarine ecosystem conditions and
their effects on marine management issues, as well as papers that
describe the transfer of information from ecosystem studies into the
