Oyster South Symposium 2022

By: Hannah Lee Leidy

The fifth Oyster South Symposium is happening Tuesday, April 5, to Thursday, April 7, in Biloxi, Mississippi. Anyone involved in the oyster industry is coming together across the Southeast region. There, they will discuss pressing issues and relevant, practical research on oyster aquaculture.

The symposium is holding meetings and events outdoors on the beautiful grounds of the Ohr O’Keefe Art Museum. Arrive Tuesday, April 5th, to catch up with everyone that evening (5 to 8 pm) at the Walter Anderson Museum of Art (WAMA). Take advantage of guided tours or explore the sites along the Gulf Coast on your own.

Enjoy industry trade shows running from Wednesday morning through Thursday afternoon. This year, vendor registration will include two meeting registrations in the price. Any additional attendees will need further registration.
