Marine biologist Daniel Okamoto will deliver the “public lecture” that is part of the Fall Seminar Series at the Oregon Institute of Marine Biology (OIMB).  Dr. Okamoto speaks on “Working towards sustainable and just management of marine resources” on Friday, Nov. 15, in OIMB’s Boathouse Auditorium. The talk is free and open to all (the talks in this series are all free, but most are oriented primarily toward scientists and students—the public lecture is aimed more at general audiences).

Okamoto specializes in studying the population dynamics of marine organisms and how fishery management affects them.

Earlier the same day, at 4 p.m., also in the OIMB Boathouse Auditorium, Okamoto will deliver a research seminar on “Spatial variation in dynamics of marine metapopulations, and the implications for ecological coexistence, collapse, and coastal management.”  This presentation is also free and open to the public, but of a more technical scientific nature.

To reach the OIMB Boathouse Auditorium, park near the campus (63466 Boat Basin Rd.) and walk down the road past the Coast Guard housing.
