A key component of ASLO’s mission is to “advance public awareness and education about aquatic resources and research.” ASLO seeks to accomplish this by 1) commenting on policies of significant interest or relevance to its membership and 2) offering training in communication with policymakers to our members. The Public Policy section provides information regarding ASLO's policy activities, policy fellowships, and downloadable resources explaining science policy implementation in the United States, European Union, and Canada.
ASLO is committed to bringing our members tools for effectively communicating the aquatic sciences to different audiences including policy-makers, the general public, and journalists. In this section, you will find numerous toolkits specifically designed with those audiences in mind.
