Responses of Arctic Marine Ecosystems to Climate Change - 28th Lowell Wakefield Fisheries Symposium 
From Tuesday, March 26, 2013
To Friday, March 29, 2013

Sea Ice covering the Arctic Ocean melted away to a record low in 2012, according to the National Snow and Ice Data Center. The steady loss of arctic sea ice is perhaps the most obvious sign of a warming planet.

Far less obvious is how individual marine species‹from arctic cod that live just below and sometimes within the sea ice, to seals, whales, polar bears and ultimately humans‹will respond to the loss of sea ice and other consequences of a warmer Arctic.

In one of the first major scientific meetings on the topic, Alaska Sea Grant will convene Responses of Arctic Marine Ecosystems to Climate Change, the 28th Lowell Wakefield Fisheries Symposium, in Anchorage, Alaska, March 26-­29, 2013. A complete description and agenda of the symposium can be found online at www.alaskaseagrant.org

This symposium will bring scientists from around the world to share their research on how arctic marine ecosystems are responding to climate change.

Among the topics are

* Observed and anticipated environmental changes in the Arctic.
* Lower trophic level productivity of arctic waters in a changing climate.
* Marine fish resources of the Arctic in a changing climate.
* Observed and anticipated responses of arctic birds and marine mammals
to environmental changes in the Arctic.
* Effects of changing arctic marine ecosystems on humans.
* Understanding and managing arctic marine ecosystems in a time of change

Location Anchorage, Alaska
