The ICES Strategic Plan recognizes the changing marine landscape. By launching this plan ICES offers a strong competent and open scientific community that can support the sustainable management of the seas.
Implementation of the plan will confront the challenges of protecting and restoring the health and productivity of the oceans for the benefit of present and future generations.
The actions to carry out the supporting activities of the strategy, and the specific plans of the four pillars of ICES are detailed in the document Implementing the ICES Strategic Plan: Linking Science, Advice, Data and Information, and the Secretariat.
