ICES Annual Science Conference 2012

The International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES) will hold its Annual Science Conference at the Scandic Bergen City Hotel in Bergen, Norway, 17-21 September 2012.

Over 600 scientists from around the world will visit Bergen to participate in the conference, held in cooperation with the Institute of Marine Research (IMR) in Bergen, which focuses on sustainable aquaculture as well as the oceanography and ecology of the Arctic in the context of climate change. In addition, the 18 theme sessions cover a wide range of topics from the effects of renewable energy production on aquatic life to the traceability of fish and fish products.

Aquaculture is today among the fastest growing food production sectors in the world and research into aquaculture–environment interactions has a high priority in many countries. Dr Karin Kroon Boxaspen from IMR will provide a deeper understanding of the issues with her opening session lecture ‘The challenge of Sustainable Aquaculture production – Research and Advice for a changing world’.

The full conference programme is available on the ICES website.
