Second International Jellyfish Blooms Symposium

Location: Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia
Event Type: Meeting
Event Date: 2007-06-24    
End Date: 2007-06-27

Event Description:
Jellyfish form spectacular population blooms and there is compelling evidence from around the world that jellyfish blooms are becoming more frequent and widespread. Blooms have enormous ecological, economic and social impacts. For example, they have been implicated in the decline of commercial fisheries; they block the cooling water intakes of coastal industries and ships and reduce the amenity of coastal waters for tourists. Blooms have been linked to overfishing, climate change and coastal pollution but their cause is still equivocal. Internationally, research on jellyfish is intensifying and this conference will bring together the world’s leading experts in the biology of jellyfish to discuss issues including the causes of blooms, the ecological and economic impacts of blooms and their management. Keynote speakers include Professor Daniel Pauly (Director, Fisheries Centre, University of British Columbia), Professor Bill Hamner (UCLA), Dr Jennifer Purcell (National Sun Yat-sen University, Taiwan) and Professor Gerhard Jams (Biozentrum Grindel und Zoologisches Museum, University of Hamburg).
