33rd New London Maritime Society Annual Meeting
Custom House Maritime Museum
New London, CT
Share this event:

On September 15, 2016, President Obama designated the first marine national monument in the Atlantic Ocean, protecting fragile deep-sea ecosystems off the coast of New England. The new national monument  which encompasses pristine underwater mountains and canyons  will provide critical protections for important ecological resources and marine species, including deep-sea corals and endangered whales and sea turtles.

At the 2016 Annual Meeting of the New London Maritime Society, scientist Peter Auster will give a presentation about the new Northeast Canyons and Seamounts Marine National Monument, an area he first explored in the 1980s. The meeting will be held November 13 at 1 PM at the Custom House Maritime Museum. Join us for a brief business meeting, Peter Austers terrific talk, and light refreshments. Suggested donation is $5 for NLMS members, and $10 nor non-members. Space is limited. RSVP: 860-447-2501 or email nlmaritimedirector@gmail.com.

Peter J. Auster is a Senior Research Scientist at Mystic Aquarium and a Research Professor Emeritus at the University of Connecticut. Dr. Austers research focuses broadly on the ecology and conservation of fishes, which has allowed him to participate as scientist or chief-scientist on over 60 major research cruises and a multitude of shore-based projects in the northwest Atlantic, Gulf of Alaska, Bering Sea, Caribbean Sea, South China Sea, Indian Ocean, Sea of Cortez, and in the equatorial Pacific. Snorkel, scuba, research submersibles and remotely operated vehicles are the principal ways he goes to work in the field.
