Bob Halley, Bob Ginsburg, University of Miami, Harold Hudson, National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and Walter Jaap, Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), led 25 participants on a pre-meeting field trip for the International Conference on Scientific Aspects of Coral Reef Assessment, Monitoring, and Restoration. The group visited 12 reef sites in the Florida Keys—relatively pristine reefs, impacted reefs, several restoration sites, and the new Florida Fossil Reef State Park that houses Gene Shinn's Key Largo Limestone cross sectional model of the reefs and keys. Terry Edgar, John Brock, and Jennifer Rahn (1999 Sea Grant Knauss Fellow working for Jeff Williams) were participants and lucky recipients of three days of good weather and clear water.

The Conference drew over 400 participants from around the world with particularly heavy participation from Australia and Pacific Island groups. Caroline Rodgers, Ginger Garrison, Nick Funiccelli, Biological Resources Division (BRD), Gainesville, and Jim Parrish, BRD, Hawaii, attended, as did Jim Maragos, Fish & Wildlife Service, Hawaii. NOAA had about 25 participants including Deputy Assistant Secretary for Oceans and Atmosphere, Sally J. Yozell, who spoke on the U.S. Commitment to Coral Reefs.
