Background

The ecosystem in the Norwegian Sea has been under constant change during the last decades. Ecologically and commercially important pelagic fish stocks; Norwegian Spring Spawning herring, North East Atlantic mackerel, and blue whiting, have all had their turn in being the most abundant pelagic species, however, the exact nature of the interspecific interactions between these species is still poorly understood.

ICES/PICES Symposium on Drivers of dynamics of small pelagic fish resources in Victoria, Canada

Marion Claireaux , (ConEvolHer), Fabian Zimmermann (ConEvolHer) and Nikos Nikolioudakis (EcoNorSe ) crossed the Atlantic to participate in the joint ICES/PICES Symposium on Drivers of dynamics of small pelagic fish resources in Victoria, Canada. The Symposium was full of captivating presentations, summing up the knowledge about small pelagics over the world, from the last 35 years, when such a gathering was last held. Marion, Fabian and Nikos also caught up with old colleagues and got to meet new for promising future collaborations.

Project description

In this study we aim at improving our understanding about the species interactions and the dynamics of the Norwegian Sea ecosystem by developing and using modern methods for identifying and quantifying the diet of these ecologically and economically important pelagic fish populations.
