During the 2022 ICES Annual Science Conference, the uptake and visibility of oceanography in ICES science and advice was explored as part of a network session and a theme session. This is a continued effort towards incorporating environmental information on the ocean climate into fisheries, aquaculture and ecosystem science.
This theme session will invite presentations and posters to demonstrate successful integration from physics to "fish" (or other ecosystem components), as well as examples of good practice. A key focus will be to provide dialogue, networking, and information sharing opportunities for scientists from across ICES community.
ICES Working Groups on Oceanic Hydrography (WGOH) and on Operational Oceanographic products for Fisheries and Environment (WGOOFE) will gather key messages from the 2022 sessions to ensure we continue our path along the "Unexpected Journey" to further integration of oceanographic data and information in ICES work.
