EEA Scientific Conference 2013 - first call for papers

The Shark Trust is delighted to be hosting the 17th European Elasmobranch Association (EEA) conference in Plymouth - a centre of marine excellence.

The conference, which will take place on the 1-3 November, will be hosted in association with the Marine Institute of Plymouth University and the National Marine Aquarium.

The theme is: “From science to policy: How applied studies of elasmobranch biology can provide the evidence to support stock assessments, advice and management decisions”. The opening address will be delivered by Fiona Harrison, Deputy Chief Scientific Advisor for the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs. A keynote presentation will also be given by Sarah Fowler, who was a founder of both the EEA and the Shark Trust and is a leading voice in global shark conservation management.

Registration is now open and the Trust is calling for all those who wish to present to submit their abstract for consideration.
