Science symposia

Shellfish - Resources and Invaders of the North

In 2019 (dates to be announced soon)
Tromsø, Norway

Carsten Hvingel (Norway)
Gordon Kruse (USA)
Bernard Sainte-Marie (Canada)

The conference will bring together the world’s leading experts on shellfish to discuss the role of cold water shellfish as a resource and player in the marine ecosystems:

  • how should we exploit them sustainably?
  • can we explain the recent changes for e.g. shrimp and snow crab and what ​​should be the management response?
  • the ecosystem effects of the coming and going of large shellfish populations are potentially massive: can these impacts be quantified?

Shellfish are “the diamonds of the sea”. They are a high-quality food source and support substantial fisheries in cold-temperate and polar areas. There is a strong interest in both the North Pacific and the North Atlantic concerning shellfish resources, their population dynamics and the management of their exploitation.​​

Dates and more details about the conference to be announced soon.
