Welcome to the Pacific Coast Section (PCS) of the National Shellfisheries Association. One of our primary missions at PCS is to support student involvement in shellfish research, resource management, restoration, and culture methods.
Please use the links at left to learn about the business of our organization but note PCS’s main function is a joint annual conference with the Pacific Coast Shellfish Growers Association (PCSGA). The conference provides a forum for academics, industry, government agencies, and environmental organizations to get together and increase knowledge of shellfish.
The 2017 PCSGA/NSA-PCS conference will be held Sept 19-21 in Welches, OR. The call for presentations is now open with abstract titles due May 1, and full abstracts due June 1. More details can be found here.
