The Microalgal Culture Workshop scheduled for January 30-31 in Cedar Key is postponed due to the continued shut-down of the federal government. Dr. Gary Wikfors, the guest speaker, is director of the NOAA Fisheries Laboratory in Milford, CT. He is a ‘non-essential’ federal government employee, who is currently not allowed to work. We hope to reschedule this workshop in the spring. Sorry for any inconvenience if you have made plans to travel to Cedar Key.
