ICES Deep-sea Symposium : Issues Confronting the Deep Oceans (ICDO): The Economic, Scientific, and Governance Challenges and Opportunities of Working



Location: Horta, Azores, Portugal
Event Type: Other
Event Date: 2009-04-27    
End Date: 2009-04-30

Event Description:
With increasing pursuit of new food, energy, mineral, and medicinal resources, technological advancements have made exploration and exploitation of the deep ocean (depths >200m) more possible today than ever before. With human activities expanding into the deep ocean, issues such as understanding deep ocean ecosystems, resilience of deep ocean resources to human disturbance, developing science-based regulations to ensure protection and sustainability, and being able to enforce existing and future management regulations are becoming priorities. Whether it be assessing deep ocean fisheries, habitats, potential energy and mineral resources, or potential development of high sea marine protected areas, pulling all interested stakeholders together (e.g., industry, enforcement, scientists, decision makers) under one symposia is thought never to have ever adequately occurred. This proposed symposium clearly addresses ICES goals of understanding the physical, chemical, and biological functioning of marine ecosystems as well as quantifying human impacts on marine ecosystems, including living marine resources.

Theme Sessions

Session A – Governance and Legal Considerations
Session B - Energy and Mineral Exploration and Development
Session C - Deep-Sea Technology Research and Development
Session D - Climate Change and Ocean Acidification
Session E - Fisheries and Ecosystem Sustainability and Conservation
Session G - Biotechnology

This event is endorsed by MarBEF. Note that the deadline for expenses is 30 April 2009.
