Fostering New Perspectives in Marine and Estuarine Science

Fostering New Perspectives in Marine and Estuarine Science

Effective management and conservation of marine and estuarine fish, fisheries, and habitats alongside expanding coastal development and novel climate regimes calls for innovative technologies and more inclusive approaches. Greater understanding of how living marine resources, and the communities that rely on those resources, respond and adapt to unprecedented environmental variation, such as rising temperatures, increased frequency and intensity of marine heatwaves, ocean acidification, hypoxia events, and eutrophication, is fundamental to progress. Such a multifaceted challenge requires transdisciplinary collaborations and education as well as novel insights. Furthermore, citizen science programs co-produce knowledge and enhance collaborations and expands stakeholder engagement. This symposium focuses on collaborative research that advances our understanding and management of marine and estuarine fisheries and the habitats that support them and particularly encourages contributions by students and early career professionals.
