7th Annual Scientific Diving Symposium

Hosted by the North Carolina Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores
Consider doing a presentation at this year’s symposium! This is an opportunity to share your work, learn about other interesting research, gain presentation experience, and network with other scientific divers and researchers in a casual environment. Past topics have included: maritime heritage and archaeology, fish and benthic communities of hardbottom habitats, coral reef monitoring, sonar technological advances, citizen science, and invasive species.
The Scientific Diving Symposium is held annually in Carteret County, NC and is open to all Scientific Divers, Scientists, and Educators who contribute to expanding knowledge of marine and estuarine environments.
