I promised to provide the run down of what went on in DC during Capitol Hill Oceans Week (CHOW) 2007.. three days when the biggest players in the oceans game gathered to discuss current ocean and coastal issues. The usual suspects ranged from marine scientists to fishermen to members of Congress with representatives from federal and state governments, executive agencies, and Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) in the mix. Even ocean celebrities Jean-Michel Cousteau and Sylvia Earle were involved. But why settle for my recap of CHOW when you can now watch what went on from the comfort of your laptop? The National Marine Sanctuary Foundation has posted PPT presentations and speaker bios here. And check back in the next few weeks for the upcoming summary report to get a more comprehensive and reader-friendly sense of CHOW '07.
