Congress Theme

The overall theme of the congress is Making Marine Science Matter. For
marine conservation to be effective, marine conservation science must matter
to stakeholders, policy makers, and practitioners. To accomplish this, the
congress will be organized around specific topics of interest for marine
conservation in general, as well as for the local area. This list is not
meant to be exhaustive, but merely a guide for submissions.  Other topics of
interest are welcomed.

.      Food security and the oceans (e.g., sustainable fisheries,
aquaculture, and livelihoods)

.      Marine renewable and non-renewable energy

.      Climate, ocean acidification, and the changing oceans

.      Advancing marine conservation through international agreements

.      Effective conservation planning (including EBM and MPAs, cumulative

.      Communicating marine conservation (marine conservation awareness and
outreach, social media)

.      Participation in marine conservation science (e.g. citizen and
indigenous science)

.      Marine tourism

.      Estuary restoration 

In addition, the SCB Marine Section developed a list of 71 research
estions>  critical to the advancement of marine conservation.  We encourage
abstracts that address one or more of these questions, but welcome all
abstracts related to marine conservation science and practice.
