2011 Marine Conservation Think Tank on "Big Ocean Network: A Research Agenda and Science Dissemination Strategy for Large-Scale MPAs"
December 2-5, 2011 (Sky City Convention Center)
Auckland, New Zealand

The Think Tank session will seek to forward: 1) the design of a shared research agenda across Big Ocean sites, and 2) the investigation of how to best design large-scale MPAs using scientific principles. A key desired output is shared vision and strategy around which Big Ocean research can be conducted, inclusive of specific key issues and topics to be addressed over the next 2-3 years. The Marine Conservation Think Tank is being hosted by the Society for Conservation Biologyʻs Marine Section just prior to the 25th ICCB (see above for more information about the conference).
