Contents Notes
"Alabama's Bays, Bayous and Beaches Symposium was the third symposium held since 1979 to examine the status of Alabama's coastal waters and to suggest future directions. The first effort, 'Symposium on the Natural Resources of the Mobile Bay Estuary, Alabama', consisted of reports from scientists and managers on what was known about Mobile Bay at the time' . The proceedings of this initial symposium still serve as an important source of information about Mobile Bay and continue to provide a foundation for future studies.The 1987 symposium sought to update the findings of the 1979 symposium and widened the scope of papers to include the economic importance of coastal waters, education programs and habitat restoration. The most recent symposium continued the tradition of scientific and management reports while reaching out to local industry and governments. Water quality, watershed management, government cooperation and citizen involvement were key topics addressed by a variety of papers. The stage was set for a new spirit of cooperation between Baldwin and Mobile counties in managing Alabama's coastal waters"--Introduction.
