Dear MEAM readers,

This issue marks the one-year anniversary of ‘eMEAM’, MEAM’s incarnation as a monthly, all-electronic newsletter. It has been our pleasure to be able to provide you with EBM and ocean planning insights and news coverage more frequently and in an easily-accessible online format. And we hope that you have found recent MEAM coverage thought-provoking and useful for your work.

As always, we can serve you best if you are active participants in and drivers of the information creation and sharing process. Please let us know if there is other information you would like to see covered in MEAM, send us relevant resources you would like to see shared with your colleagues, and share your own expertise and opinions through Letters to the Editor.

You can reach me at to discuss any ideas you have for MEAM so that we can better serve the marine community and marine ecosystems together.

Best wishes for your work,

Sarah Carr
MEAM Editor
