Will the “real” SEANET step forward?

9 01 2017

The Seabird Ecological Assessment Network (aka SEANET) was established in the fall of 2002 by the Tufts Center for Conservation Medicine / Wildlife Clinic. The network is comprised largely of volunteers that collect data on seabird mortality, population distribution, ocean contamination, and coastal land use that are stored in a SEANET GIS-based repository. This project sustains a long-term marine and coastal ecosystem health monitoring project using seabirds as sentinels, fostering participation by citizen scientists.

The “other” SEANET sites are:

(1)The Sustainable Ecological Aquaculture Network, or SEANET project is a National Science Foundation funded project to help scientists at the University of Maine explore how different types and scales of aquaculture fit into Maine’s multi-use working waterfront and the river ecosystem. The goal is to build a network of interdisciplinary researchers along the coast of Maine to help advance sustainable ecological aquaculture (SEA) and support marine STEM sciences in Maine’s K-12 curricula.

(2) SeaNet is a teaching tool for undergraduate students at Stanford University’s Hopkins Marine Station in Pacific Grove, CA. This is a guide to common marine invertebrates, seaweeds and fishes likely to be encountered on rocky shoresand kelp forests of Monterey Bay and central California.

Depending on your affiliation, SEANET can mean different things to different people, but for “Seanetters” there is only one SEANET – the Seabird Ecological Assessment Network!
