Workshops – Revisiting the 2003 Mercury Strategy for the Bay-Delta Ecosystem

In January of 2016, a three-day workshop was held titled: Revisiting the 2003 Mercury Strategy for the Bay-Delta Ecosystem. More than 85 scientists, policy experts, and managers attended each of the three days of the workshop.

Workshop Purpose: Was to create a shared understanding of the current knowledge of mercury dynamics, critical uncertainties, and associated priorities for research, monitoring, and evaluation to address challenges associated with mercury in the Delta ecosystem. Scientists can use the information that was presented to identify the most significant research needed to better project mercury dynamics, while local managers, stakeholders, and the public can use this knowledge to guide management decisions addressing mercury mitigation. The workshop also assessed the progress made toward achieving the recommendations outlined in the 2003 Strategy.
