ICES Annual Science Conference 2018

Methodological advances to evaluate ecosystem impacts of human activities

Report on state of the art advancements on methodologies and analytical approaches to evaluate and quantify effects of human activities

Monday, 24 September
Lecture Hall J

​​​Presentations in this session will provide a means to take stock of current developments and document further needs. These discussions will help to identify dedicated gaps to support science, management and advice. We will consider both pelagic and benthic ecosystem components as well as wide array of human drivers, such as living resource extractions, aquaculture, shipping, dredging, mineral extraction, and energy generation.

The session will seek examples on novel approaches to impact evaluations on different ecosystem attributes, such as species distributions, mortality/survival, population sizes (abundance/biomass), trophic interactions and energy flows.

Ongoing scientific developments can expand our ability to gather new datasets (via satellites, in situ sensors, new sampling designs and analytical methods), and these new developments can support much improved scientific products.

The session is organized by the ICES Ecosy​​​​​​​stem Processes and Dynamics Steering Group (EPDSG) and the Human Activities, Pressures and Impacts Steering Gr​​oup (HAPISG).
