Shellfish - Resources and Invaders of the North

Shellfish symposium

5-7 November 2019
Tromsø, Norway

Call for abstracts is now open.
Deadline for submissions: 1 August 2019

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The goal of this symposium is to discuss the role of cold-water shellfish both as a harvestable resource and as important ecosystem players in northern hemisphere cold marine ecosystem:

  • How do we exploit them sustainably
  • Can we explain the recent changes in distribution and population dynamics for e.g.  shrimp and snow crab, and what should be the management responses?
  • What are the ecological effects of invasive species, and should they be controlled by excessive harvests or managed for sustainability?
  • The ecosystem effects of the boom and bust of large shellfish populations are potentially massive; can these impacts be quantified?

​Symposium format

The 3-day symposium will consist of plenary sessions and poster presentations. Sessions will include invited and contributed papers. Contributed papers will be selected for oral and poster presentations. Duration of t​alks including question: 20 min (e.g. 17 min. talk + 3 min. questions). 

Publication Plan

Contributions will be published in ICES Journal of Marine Science. Note that manuscripts can be submitted at any time between the first call for papers, 11 February until 3 months after the conference, 8 February 2020.
