Scoot Science gives marine operators the data management, analytics, and modeling needed to better manage ocean risk.  We’ve put years of work into understanding how ocean observing data can help coastal marine operators manage rapid ocean change.  And, we’ve built a team of oceanographers, economists, and software engineers that are working together to connect ocean observing insights to the business challenges of the blue economy. The panel discussion on June 25th will give you an opportunity to learn more about Scoot Science, discuss the transition from academia to private industry, and hear perspectives on opportunities in the aquaculture industry.
