FLIBS17: Take a daily dive into underwater seminars

While most of the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS) takes place above the waterline, several organizations want to remind people to think of the marine life below.

To that end, each afternoon from Thursday to Sunday, show attendees are invited to hear marine scientists from local universities to discuss their latest research about coral reefs, sharks and billfish. The series of talks is billed as, “Immerse Yourself at the Coral Reef Pavilion”.

The talks will be at the Coral Reef Pavilion located near the center of the show in front of the Bahia Mar Yachting Center office each afternoon at 2 p.m. and are sponsored by Greater Fort Lauderdale Alliance, Greater Fort Lauderdale Hello Sunny, FLIBS, Marine Industries Association of South Florida and Starmark.
