21st European Elasmobranch Association Scientific Conference

The Dutch Elasmobranch Society has organized the 21st European Elasmobranch Association Scientific Conference from 12th-14th October in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The conference will include a diverse programme of lectures and breakout sessions on key topics in the study of cartilaginous fishes.

This year’s theme will be “The science you need, for the policy you want” to address one of the main objectives of the EEA which is to bridge the gap between scientists and policy makers and thus ensuring management of elasmobranchs is based on the best available science. The programme will include the following theme sessions:

  • perspectives for spatial management;
  • movement ecology and its role in monitoring elasmobranch populations;
  • implantation of international legislation and policy;
  • selectivity, survival and discards of elasmobranchs in fisheries                                                                                                                       For more information, visit www.elasmobranch.nl/eea2017
