The Great Lakes BIOTIC Symposium aims to advance the knowledge and understanding of the organisms in trade (OIT) invasion pathway. The symposium will identify research gaps to improve management of OIT and will facilitate the efficient transfer of information between researchers, managers, educators, OIT industries/associations and the public. Presentations will focus on specific OIT invasion pathways and highlight work being done relating to risk assessment, regulations, outreach and industry efforts.

The Great Lakes BIOTIC Symposium is hosted by the Wisconsin and Minnesota Sea Grant Programs on behalf of the Great Lakes Sea Grant Network. Support for this Symposium was provided by a Great Lakes Restoration Initiative grant through the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
