The Gulf of Mexico Seagrass Community of Practice hosted a hybrid meeting earlier this month to take a “deep dive” into seagrass monitoring projects and programs in the Gulf of Mexico. Experts from across the region discussed seagrass sampling, mapping, research needs, and more. Next, input from this workshop will be used to develop recommendations for a common monitoring framework. A full workshop report will be available early next year.
