The International Conference
on Shellfish Restoration

Jekyll Island,
Georgia, USA
15-18 SEPTEMBER, 2024

Join our conference and meet shellfish experts from around the world. 

The first ICSR was held in 1996. Since that time, it has been held all over the world from Canada to Scotland to Australia and stops in between, often meeting in the charming coastal city of Charleston, South Carolina, USA. Unique in its approach, ICSR is organized to allow interaction among participants forming collaborations and friendships that last a lifetime. 

ICSR returns in 2024 to the southeastern United States, convening on Jekyll Island, Georgia. 

Jekyll Island, Georgia provides the perfect setting for immersion into coastal beauty and the natural resources that we are working to restore. The Jekyll Island Convention Center offers convenient, stunning oceanfront gathering spaces.
