Successful ICES/Myfish symposium on targets and limits for long term fisheries management

Best quality scientific approaches to fisheries management advice and implementation under potentially conflicting objectives were the main topic of the final Myfish symposium held in Athens (Greece) from 27-31 October 2015. The event, held under the auspices of the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES), brought together experts from across the world to discuss targets and limits for successful long term fisheries management.

 

The ICES/Myfish symposium brought together more than 70 high-level experts from 12 European countries, Canada, the USA, Chile, New Zealand, Australia and Japan. At the symposium, successful case studies from the different geographical areas were presented and discussed to assess possible future implementation in European fisheries management.
