The ICES/PICES Symposium on Drivers of Dynamics of Small Pelagic Fish Resources has the goal of revitalizing international cooperation on investigations of small pelagic fishes, and developing a framework to address unresolved questions, such as the impact of climate and fishing pressure on the resilience of small pelagic populations. Nereus Alumnus Rebecca Asch (East Carolina University), Alumnus Ryan Rykaczewski (University of South Carolina), and Research Associate Rashid Sumaila (UBC) will be presenting.
