MEAL (Meeting of Experts on Aquatic Life: https://wlee11.wixsite.com/meal) is an online scientific meeting platform for researchers on aquatic organisms: from microbes and fungi to plants and animals. MEAL was established in June 2020 in the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic, and aims to continue scientific activities, and communications among the experts on aquatic organisms. It has one regular online meeting in a year. The first MEAL is served on November 11, 2020 through an online format. PEAL is the proceedings of MEAL, and will sound every year in Diversity. The scope of MEAL is broad, and all studies on taxonomy, ecology, and biodiversity of aquatic organisms including benthos, plankton, and nekton are welcome.
