Abstracts should be identified as submissions to the special workshop: Acoustic Challenges in Aquatic Ecosystem Assessment listed under the Technical Area Code "FW." You may also indicate your preference for oral or poster presentation. Preference will be considered but cannot be guaranteed, as most contributed presentations will be scheduled for poster sessions.
