31st Wakefield Fisheries Symposium

Impacts of a Changing Environment on the Dynamics of High-latitude Fish and Fisheries

Event Type: Conferences and Workshops

When: 9 May 2017 to 11 May 2017

Where: Hotel Captain Cook, Anchorage, Alaska

More information: 


This symposium examines the impacts of the environment, especially climate change and variability, on the dynamics of arctic and subarctic species of commercial, subsistence, and ecological importance. We will focus on the effects of warming, loss of sea ice, ocean acidification, and oceanographic variability on the distribution, phenology, life history, population dynamics, and interactions of these species and how a better understanding of these effects can inform the assessment and management of fish and invertebrate populations in a changing ocean for the benefit of affected communities.

Abstracts for oral presentations and posters are invited from fishery, marine, and social scientists as well as managers, industry, and representatives of affected communities.

Abstract submission deadline: Sunday, 15 January 2017.
