The Consortium of Aquatic Science Societies (CASS) sponsors this as to bring together a wealth of subject matter experts for educational opportunities and to solve complex environmental issues.

Scientists from GLSC attended and presented at the Joint Aquatic Sciences Meeting in Grand Rapids, Michigan, May 14-20, 2022. “The Joint Aquatic Sciences Meeting (JASM) will be the world’s largest gathering of aquatic scientists, students, practitioners, resource agency staff, and industry representatives in history. JASM’s parent organization, The Consortium of Aquatic Science Societies (CASS), is comprised of 9 groups representing various interests within the aquatic science realm. The JASM 2022 meeting is designed to bring together deep, multidisciplinary subject-matter expertise to collaboratively educate one another and solve the complex environmental problems facing our society and our planet today.”
