Ecosystem Studies of Subarctic and Arctic Seas (ESSAS) is a regional programme of the Integrated Marine Biosphere Research project (IMBeR). Its goal is to compare, quantify and predict the impact of climate variability on the productivity and sustainability of Subarctic and Arctic marine ecosystems.
The 2020 ESSAS Annual Science Meeting (ASM) that was originally scheduled to be held last year, will now be held online.
The aims of the ASM are to improve understanding of how climate change will affect aquaculture and capture fisheries, and how in turn these changes will affect resource-dependent communities. Management strategies to foster resilience in these systems will also be considered.
Abstract submissions should address these themes from the perspectives of paleo- and contemporary ecology, social sciences, and others to help inform understanding of future changes affecting fisheries and aquaculture in high-latitude marine ecosystems.
