100th Council meeting explores ICES role in the Arctic

The governing body of the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES) is holding its 100th statutory meeting in Copenhagen 24-25 October.

During the two-day meeting the ICES Council will discuss new initiatives including sustainable aquaculture. A special session will be held to explore how ICES can contribute to current and future research activities in Arctic waters.

The Council will also consider how ICES can support its member countries in implementing the Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD), and how ICES can become involved with integrated ecosystem monitoring proposals. The Action Plan for the EU Maritime Strategy for the Atlantic Ocean is also on the agenda.

To mark the 100th statutory meeting, ICES will be hosting a private reception at the Carlsberg Academy in Copenhagen in cooperation with the Carlsberg Foundation. Bo Poulsen, associate professor at the University of Aalborg, will give a presentation on the history of Denmark’s contribution to global marine science.
