Eighth Biennial State of the Bay Symposium

Galveston Bay 2003-2004
The Galveston Bay Estuary Program (Estuary Program) invites oral and poster presentations and proposals for panel sessions for its Eighth Biennial State of the Bay Symposium. The Estuary Program, a non-regulatory program administered by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, and its partners work together to implement The Galveston Bay Plan, a 20-year, science-based plan designed to protect and restore the bay. The Estuary Program hosts the biennial symposium to provide an opportunity for stakeholders to interact and share successes, the latest monitoring and research findings, and challenges for the future.

This year, the Estuary Program welcomes presentations and panel sessions of special interest to estuary business, industry, recreation, education, academic, local government, resource management and environmental communities. The content of the presentations need not be limited to Galveston Bay, but applicable to estuarine systems such as the bay.

Presentations and panel sessions will focus on topics related to:
- Habitat and living resource conservation
- Balancing human uses and environmental needs of estuaries
- Water/sediment quality and pollutant loadings
- Public participation and education
- The latest research needs and findings
- Environmental monitoring
- Programmatic performance measures.

Areas of interest as they relate to the topics noted above include emerging threats, management successes and challenges, understanding physical and biological factors of estuarine ecosystems, and innovative tools, incentives and techniques.
