The goal of the 2017 symposium is to revitalize global international cooperation on investigations of SPF and to identify, discuss and develop a framework to address unanswered questions such as the impact of climate and/or fishing pressure on the resilience of small pelagic populations using a comparative approach. Because of the importance of environmental and anthropogenic drivers on small pelagic resources, the participation of experts in physical oceanography, climate, and socio-economics is essential.
Registration and abstract submission is open.
To present the first outputs of EKLIPSE, identify further knowledge needs with respect to biodiversity in the context of nature-based solutions and to further develop our joint networking, EKLIPSE will organise jointly with partners including BiodivERsA and EPBRS a series of workshops and conferences from 6th to 8th of December in Brussels – you will receive further information on this in due time – but save the date if your network is interested in attending.

The IOC1 Sub-Commission for the Western Pacific (WESTPAC) has been committed to its mission to promote international cooperation in marine research, observations, services and capacity development in the Western Pacific and its adjacent regions, in order to generate and advance ocean knowledge for marine environment protection, ocean governance, and sustainable development of marine and coastal resources.
The Seas, Rivers, Islands and Coastal Areas Intergroup brings together more than 80 MEPs from six different political groups and from 19 Member States.
Marine Litter - not only a European but a global inescapable problem that has gained more awareness in recent years due to the seriousness of its impacts on our eco-systems, economies and society as a whole.
This conference aims to present the state of play in our oceans and discuss potential solutions to tackle marine litter.
This will take place on 6 September 2016 from 9:00-12:00
