4th International Conference "Progress in Marine Conservation in Europe 2015", Stralsund

The 4th international conference on "Progress in Marine Conservation in Europe 2015" offers a regular international forum for discussions on currently important marine conservation issues in Europe with occasional examples from beyond.

International experts will again discuss emerging issues and new research results, and identify promising approaches to proceed in marine nature conservation in Europe.

The intended presentations will focus on:

  • Current status of the implementation of MPA and EBSA networks;
  • Current protection status and new research results on threatened or declining marine species and habitats like sharks and rays, whales, deep sea species, seamounts and hydrothermal vents or other benthic habitats;
  • Anthropogenic impacts on the marine environment and their management with focus on fisheries, e.g. management measures alternative fishing gear, and on the effects of offshore windfarms;
  • Marine nature conservation in marine policy: the European Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD); Marine Spatial Planning; the economic value of ecosystem services;
  • New research and marine monitoring methods like digital aerial survey or sediment and benthic mapping.
