Board meetings are scheduled the third Tuesday of March, April, May, June, September, November and December at noon (unless otherwise noted) in the Seattle Aquarium Shilshole Bay and Salish Sea classrooms and are open to the public.

Since this will be a virtual meeting, we are asking that all public comments be submitted via email,, by or before 11am (one hour prior to the meeting’s 12pm start time).

A 10-minute public comment period will be provided at the beginning of the meeting with a member of the Aquarium staff reading each public comment aloud, on a first-received, first-read basis, up to two minutes each.
