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 the local area. This list is not meant
to be exhaustive but merely a guide for the conference.

. Food security and the oceans (sustainable fisheries and aquaculture)
. Marine renewable and non-renewable energy
. Climate, ocean acidification, and the changing oceans
. Advancing marine conservation through international treaties
. 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
. Marine tourism
. Estuary restoration


And many other topics .
