Organised by Marit Reigstad and Alf Hakon Hoel, UiT – the Arctic University of Norway.

What does it take to manage fisheries sustainably?

Drawing on experiences from Arctic shelf seas, this panel will address the critical elements of modern fisheries management. This include scientific work to understand and monitor marine ecosystems and how they are changing, the provision of scientific advice, cooperation between governments on management of transboundary fish stocks, domestic resource management regimes, and robust enforcement practices are important here.
