Dr. Ed Hind-Ozan joins me on this episode of Ocean Talk Friday to discuss how conferences benefit people in the field of Marine Science and Conservation. Conferences are great for networking, collaborating on future projects and sharing information about different projects and strategies for the Ocean's best interest. 

Ed is the chair of the International Marine Conservation Congress that will take place in Malaysia in 2018 and shared his experience at the past conferences. 

We took the time to discuss some of the papers that were published recently from discussions and sessions arising from the IMCC 4 meeting in St. John's, Newfoundland. Here are the stories that we covered today:
1) Conch fisheries management
2) Geovisualizations Paper 1 and Paper 2
3) Gender Inequality at Marine Conservation Conferences
