Call for Presentations

20th annual Regional Aquatics Workshop (RAW)

May 15-19, 2006


Hola Fishheads!


Moody Gardens invites you to actively participate in the 17th annual (20th actual) RAW being held in Galveston, Texas.  Dazzle us with your brilliance and delight us with your experiences in the watery realm.  RAW prides itself on being an opportunity to actively foster communication amongst all levels of aquarium operations from entry level aquarist through facility director.  This community relies on information sharing to advance our husbandry skills and exhibit operations, collaborate on conservation and research and mentor the professionals of tomorrow.  This year, along with the usual range of topics for discussion we are devoting sessions to specific topics; cephalopods, disaster preparedness/assistance networks, and aquatic animal enrichment.
