Workshop on ecological valuing of areas of the Barents Sea

A workshop to identify joint data flows and criteria for mapping special/valued areas in the Barents Sea.

23–24 May 2019
ICES Headquarters, Copenhagen, Denmark
​​​​​​​The workshop will define what constitutes a special/valued areas and work towards a candidate framework(s) for identification of special/valued areas in the Barents Sea.
This work will be based on a review of recent work carried out by the HAV-1 project and ICES Working Group on the Integrated Assessment of the Barents Sea (WGIBAR), as well work prepared by invited experts. 
The workshop will also demonstrate the practical use of a framework in ecological valuing of areas of the Barents Sea. As such, active contributions by workshop participants working in the Barents Sea areas will be essential. Data flows that showcase data products emergent from the framework will be highlighted. 

The workshop, chaired by Adriaan Rijnsdorp, Markku Viitasalo, and Mariano Koen-Alonso, will meet 23–24 May 2019 at ICES Headquarters, Copenhagen, Denmark. There is no fee to participate, but registration is required.  If you plan to attend, please register at your earliest convenience by contacting Lise Cronne, ICES Secretariat (lise.cronne@ices.dk​).
