Workshop Notice: Open Ocean Monitoring and Adaptive Management Strategy at GoMOSES


On February 4, 2019 the Open Ocean Restoration Area Trustees will hold a workshop to seek input on the identification and prioritization of information needed to facilitate restoration for injured resources. The workshop will be held in coordination with the 2019 Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill & Ecosystem Science Conference.

The workshop will include an overview of the Open Ocean Trustee Implementation Group’s restoration goals, current restoration priorities, and potential approaches for evaluating Open Ocean restoration outcomes.  Participants will be asked to provide input on the data needed to best inform planning, implementation, and evaluation of Open Ocean restoration activities for fish and water column invertebrates, mesophotic and deep benthic communities, sea turtles, marine mammals, birds, and sturgeon injured by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, as well as data needed to inform restoration of the injury to the Gulf of Mexico ecosystem.

Please contact us at by January 14, 2019, if you need assistance due to a hearing or visual impairment.
