Partnership meeting and annual marine biosecurity science presentations were combined in July 2018. The Top of the South Marine Biosecurity Partnership moved its annual partnership meeting to the day before the NZ Biosecurity Institute NETS conference in Nelson. The focus was "new science and technology".
NIWA and the Cawthron Institute offered to combine their annual seminar to present the results of marine biosecurity research funded by MBIE over the last year. The result was a full day of science and technology followed by an opportunity for practitioners to share experiences.
The presentations provided and a summary of discussions is provided on this page.
