Past Symposia and Conferences

NAFO has held nine symposia since 2001, often in conjunction with other organisations sharing similar interests on the long-term sustainability of fisheries, fish stocks and the ecosystems they occupy. These have been supported by four dedicated workshops covering a variety of specialised topics that support the work of the Scientific Council. Proceedings are published in the NAFO’s Journal of Northwest Atlantic Fishery Science or in the journal of the organising partner. A full list is given below:

Upcoming - March 2025 - Applying the Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries Management in ABNJ

ICES/NAFO Symposium on Decadal Variability of the North Atlantic and its Marine Ecosystems: 2010-2019

22 August 2022

ICES/NAFO Symposium on Decadal Variability of the North Atlantic and its Marine Ecosystems: 2010-2019

Bergen, Norway: 20 – 22 June 2022

The Standing Committee on Fisheries Environment (STACFEN) of NAFO was present during the symposium, ICES-NAFO 4th Decadal Variability of the North Atlantic and its Marine Ecosystems: 2010–2019, held in Bergen, Norway (20 – 22 June 2022). Frederic Cyr and Paula Fratantoni from STACFEN were members of the symposium's scientific committee, bridging ICES and NAFO scientists to challenges associated with changes in the climate-ocean system in the North Atlantic.

The Role of Marine Mammals in the Ecosystem in the 21st Century (2008)

31 October 2008

The Role of Marine Mammals in the Ecosystem in the 21st Century (2008)

29 September – 1 October 2008, Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada

The symposium will present new findings on the syntheses of information over ecosystem components, on biological and physical aspects of the environment, and on new research approaches to understanding the role of marine mammals.

Reproductive and Recruitment Processes of Exploited Marine Fish Stocks (2007)

31 October 2007

Reproductive and Recruitment Processes of Exploited Marine Fish Stocks (2007)

1–3 October 2007, Lisbon, Portugal

The Northwest Atlantic Fisheries Organization (NAFO), the North Pacific Marine Science Organization (PICES), and the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES), announce a joint symposium on "Reproductive and Recruitment Processes of Exploited Marine Fish Stocks", to be held on 1-3 October 2007, at the Altis Hotel, in Lisbon, Portugal.

The symposium will provide a scientific forum to present and discuss study findings on reproduction, early life history and recruitment of exploited marine finfish and invertebrate stocks. Continued low abundance and low recruitment of many stocks necessitates a broad examination of key biological processes underlying potential stock recovery.
