Where: Bergen, Norway
ASC 2012 focuses on polar research and the changing and vulnerable Arctic area, as well as on sustainable aquaculture. The impacts of climate change, ocean acidification, and of marine and maritime industries on the marine environment in the Arctic challenge us to find the balance between responsible use of marine resources and conservation. The oceans are critical for global food security. ICES is a major partner in promoting the sustainable use of natural resources in a way that maintains biodiversity and the functioning of ecosystems.
