The 4th Symposium on Decadal Variability of the North Atlantic and it’s Marine Ecosystem: 2010-2019 will take place 26-28 April 2022 in Bergen, Norway.

This symposium is part of a series of decadal symposiums organized by the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES), Northwest Atlantic Fisheries Organization (NAFO) and Norwegian Institute of Marine Research (IMR), where researchers will convene to review the variability of North Atlantic environmental conditions and marine ecosystems over the past decade. The intention is to understand the relationship between ecosystem components and how they influence the distribution, abundance and productivity of living marine resources. While the symposium focuses on reviewing the last decade, contributions related to sub-decadal forecast of ecosystem change and application of environmental data to ocean resource management are also welcome.


Theme sessions:

  1. Ocean climate and physical environment in the North Atlantic and their linkages to changing marine ecosystem
  2. Decadal change and trends in North Atlantic/sub-Arctic plankton and their ecosystems
  3. Trends and drivers of decadal variability in fish and invertebrates
  4. Expanding horizons: assessing decadal changes and incorporating social-ecological systems in the North Atlantic
