CSB Symposium banner 2022

Goal of the symposium

This 4-day ICES symposium on capelin will seek to revise and expand our knowledge base on capelin biology, ecology, and roles in Arctic and Sub-Arctic ecosystems, with focus on capelin stocks in the (i) Barents Sea, (ii) waters around Iceland–East Greenland–Jan Mayen, (iii) the Newfoundland–Labrador Shelf, and (iv) Gulf of Alaska and Bering Sea. 

The symposium will consist of four theme sessions and will include both oral and poster presentations and panel discussions, covering topics ranging from the bottom-up processes that affect the capelin habitat and population dynamics, to the impact of variable capelin production on the larger food web and the challenges that stock assessors and managers face when monitoring, assessing and setting fisheries quotas for this keystone forage fish in a changing environment.

Deadline for abstract: 15 April
