Louisiana Sea Grant has an online forum – or bulletin board system (BBS) – where GOM researchers collecting samples in the field can coordinate their efforts. The forum section can be accessed at http://sg-server.lsu.edu/forums/ . Researchers wanting to coordinate their collection trips should post threads under the “Research Sample Collection” topic. Using the forum requires registration, which only takes a few minutes to complete. Once registered, users can create threads, post and respond to messages and maintain a profile.
