We have always been interested in disseminating our research, results and perspectives, and translating them, accordingly, to make their scientific complexity accessible to different publics.

The deliberate choice to use a diverse array of documents and media platforms (scientific publications, book chapters, reports, professional magazines articles, invited national/international conference presentations and seminars, newspapers/radio/TV interviews and documentaries, public school and community outreach activities, Google Scholar, ResearchGate, LinkedIn, Facebook, YouTube videos, Wikipedia, etc.), both in English and French, has enabled us to reach varied targeted fields and audiences in Canada and beyond.

This has allowed us to spread the IMTA message widely with researchers, federal and provincial agencies, industry, professional associations, coastal and rural communities, First Nations, national and international environmental non-governmental organizations, and the general and school public.

It is interesting to note the evolution in the type of conferences we have attended: from seaweed-oriented to aquaculture-oriented scientific conferences to conferences attended by decision-makers and influencers (e.g. Bacon and Eggheads Breakfast on Parliament Hill in Ottawa, Capitol Hill Ocean Week in Washington, the Monaco Blue Initiative under the auspices of H.S.H. Prince Albert II) to have the Blue Revolution/Economy mature into the greener Turquoise Revolution/Economy in Canada and beyond.
