The RMP Annual Meeting was held on Tuesday, October 4, 2011 at the Oakland Marriott City Center. The meeting focused on pollutant effects on aquatic life, and featured a keynote presentation by Dan Schlenk, University of California Riverside, on contaminant effects on fish. The meeting also provided updates on the recently released water quality report card, monitoring and effects studies on fish, birds, and seals, and the status of the RMP nutrients strategy. About 160 people attended the meeting, and feedback on the meeting was very positive.
