Region's largest gathering on the state of the ecosystem

More than 1100 scientists and researchers converge on Vancouver, B.C. this week to attend the 2016 Salish Sea Ecosystem Conference. The conference runs from April 13-15 and will include a combined 600 presentations and posters. It's the region's largest gathering on the state of the ecosystem, and we'll distil some of the best of it in our Salish Sea Currents series. 

We are sending ten science writers to cover stories ranging from the latest findings on salmon research to new takes on underwater acoustics. These stories will appear on the pages of the Encyclopedia of Puget Sound over the next few months, but if you want a sense of what is happening during the week, our writers and others will be posting to Twitter using the hashtag #SSEC16. You'll also be able to identify us by the signature #EoPS.
