Millport Marine Symposium

“The 3rd Millport Marine Symposium is fast approaching and the programme of speakers has now been finalised! The conference event on Saturday 19th will feature 16 speakers from all fields of marine science and the diverse array of presentation topics on offer is sure to provide exciting opportunities to find out about some fantastic projects from both here in the UK and further afield. The heavily reduced rate of £15 per conference ticket includes all-day refreshments and a buffet lunch, with all proceeds from the conference contributing towards the development and restoration of the Robertson Museum and Aquarium. The Symposium welcomes all ages and backgrounds from academics, researchers and conservations to artists, students and families. This year’s event hopes to build on the success of last year’s conference by engaging a wider audience and a greater diversity of talks. Free and paid field excursions will be run on the Sunday morning including rocky shore visit, plankton microscopy lab and wildlife boat trips!

If you are interested in attending the conference or know someone that does, please get in touch with the centre via email ([email protected]) or phone (01475531420) to book a space. Accommodation and food is available at the centre for residential guests at a very competitive rate and can be purchased along with the conference ticket and excursions.

We hope to see you on the island in October!”
