Did you know that some deep-sea coral live to be over 4,000 years old? Did you know we still have large coral and sponge colonies off the coast of California that support rich communities of fish? They need our protection.

Join Dirk Rosen, founder and executive director of MARE (Marine Applied Research & Exploration), at the 5th Annual MARE Soirée and learn more about exploring and protecting deep-sea corals, the old growth forests of the ocean.

WHEN: Thurs., Nov. 16 – 6-9pm

WHERE: Waterbar, 399 The Embarcadero in San Francisco

WHAT: Enjoy drinks and sustainable seafood with MARE’s Executive Director Dirk Rosen, their Board of Directors, staff and supporters as you learn more about exploring and protecting deep-sea corals. Waterbar is the perfect setting on the waterfront because they continue to set new standards of sustainability, variety and excellence in the sourcing, preparation and presentation of food from the sea.
