Commissioner Mark Williams has announced that Georgia's territorial waters will close to commercial and recreational oyster harvest effective 6:00 a.m., Monday, June 1, 2015 through midnight on Wednesday, September 30, 2015. A similar closure occurred in 2014 to meet the requirements of Georgia's Vibrio parahaemolyticus (Vp) control plan.

05/01/2015 – Website Addition

The Sapelo Island National Estuarine Research Reserve (SINERR) worked with Wade Sheldon to develop a Sapelo research registration and review system in 2014 (http://gce-lter.marsci.uga.edu/sinerr/). The SINERR web application was modeled after the GCE-LTER registration system, and is currently being hosted by GCE to provide shared access. This month we expanded the system to accommodate research requests for projects sponsored by UGAMI and Georgia DNR, in addition to SINERR, to provide a common registration framework across organizations. SINERR staff will initially review and approve new UGAMI and DNR research applications along with SINERR applications, then all research partners will be notified of newly approved projects. SINERR, UGAMI and GA DNR staff are also notified of newly-approved GCE-LTER research projects, allowing potential conflicts or unforeseen problems to be addressed before research begins.
