This landmark seminar series/ graduate course at the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History in Brewster took place on alternate Tuesday evenings between January 17 and May 23, 2006, with an all-day Saturday workshop on April 8th. All sessions were open to the public. Through panel discussions by world-class experts on both sides of the issue, as well as lectures and workshops, we explored the sources of conflict and potential solutions for such controversial issues as Navy sonar and its effect on marine mammals, the fate of the right whale, competing claims to Georges Bank and Gulf of Maine groundfish stocks, herring and mackerel mid-water trawl fisheries and their impacts on marine food webs, and managing coastal resources for many interests.
