UPDATE, Aug 16 — The Capitol Hill Ocean Week 2013 Summary Report is now available for download. Take a look.

Today is the first day of Capitol Hill Ocean Week (CHOW) 2013.

CHOW is hosted by the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation (NMSF) and has provided policymakers, academics, business leaders and ocean enthusiasts with an incredible networking opportunity every June for over a decade. This year, CHOW is taking place at Washington D.C.’s Newseum from June 4-6.

“Capitol Hill Ocean Week brings together leaders in industry, government, academia, and non-profit groups from around the nation,” explains Dr. Robert Ballard in NMSF’s video. “The week is full of exciting seminars and interactive discussion on everything from the importance of our ocean economy and its linkage to ocean exploration to the need for marine conservation.”

CHOW “connects our government to the ocean issues affecting our world every day,” concludes Dr. Ballard.
