About this event

The Malacological Society of Australasia (MSA) is a group dedicated to the research on- and conservation, appreciation and sustainable use of molluscs. MSA is organizing a series of online symposia on a number of broad topics and issues in the field of mollusc research and management. The theme of our first symposium is Molluscs in Fisheries and Aquaculture. The event will be broadcast via Zoom, and is free of charge and open to members and non-members of MSA. The whole event will take a maximum of four hours, during which we will hear three keynote presentations, in addition to lightening talks from highly achieving early career researchers, and participate in a discussion forum at the end. Please RSVP to attend. A Zoom link will be sent to your email (the one used in this registration) on the day of the Symposium.
