About the Symposium


The biennial Symposium is a forum for Delta managers, researchers, and decision-makers to meet, share, and synthesize information, and communicate best practices and lessons learned.


The Symposium theme this year is Making Connections: Understanding Connectivity in an Invaded Estuary.” Presentations will focus on how connections within and among estuaries impact invasive species movement, how connectivity of different types can both help and hinder invasive species control, and how making connections among disciplines, policies, and actors is critical to effective invasive species management.

The DIISC Team, which meets quarterly, was formed in 2013 to foster communication and collaboration among California state agencies that detect, prevent, and manage invasive species in the Delta. 

Invasive species are non-native species whose introduction causes or is likely to cause harm to economies, the environment, or human health. The Delta is among the world’s estuaries most invaded by non-native species. At least 185 non-native species are currently present and new species will likely arrive.
