Science symposia

ESSAS Symposium on Moving in, out and across the Subarctic and Arctic-shifting boundaries of water, ice, flora, fauna, people and institutions

12–15 June 2017, Tromsø, Norway

Conveners:
Ken Drinkwater (Norway)
Franz Mueter (USA)
Sei-Ichi Saitoh (Japan)

​​​​​​​​​​Symposium's goal

​​​​​​​​​​ICES has long recognized that marine productivity will change in response to climate change and other factors, including ocean acidification and human pressures such as fishing, particularly in the Arctic and sub-Arctic seas.  The proposed meeting will document present ecosystem changes due to multiple factors in these geographic areas, as well as address possible future ecosystem changes.  Given the rapid rate of Arctic warming and the disappearance of the sea ice, as well as observed ecological changes, it is essential to meet the challenges of climate warming as soon as possible in order to prepare the management and institutional responses by seeking innovative solutions based on sound scientific knowledge.  

Themes:

  • Paleo-Ecology
  • Ecosystem impacts of advection and mixing
  • Timing/phenology and match-mismatch: are they critical issues?
  • Future Sub-Arctic and Arctic Marine Ecosystems under Climate Change
  • Shifting habitats, persistent hot spots, and the distribution of benthos, plankton, fish, seabirds and marine mammals - observations, models, mechanisms and effect
  • Ocean Acidification
  • Multiple Stressors
  • Science, Policy and Management
  • General Open Session
