From November 11 to 16, 2017, Nereus Program Director of Science William Cheung (UBC) will be attending the FlatFish Symposium in Saint-Malo, France. Titled “Ten International Flatfish Symposia and 30+ Years of Advanced Research: Flatfish Ecology in 2017,” the Syposium strives to:

  1. Present emerging research on the biology and ecology of flatfish species across the globe.
  2. Quantify linkages between flatfishes, atmospheric, oceanographic, and other abiotic and biotic components of the ecosystem.
  3. Explore management tools for assessing and improving the sustainability of flatfish populations and related human activities (fisheries and aquaculture).

On Sunday, November 12, Cheung will be delivering a keynote speech on the “Vulnerability and Risks of Impacts of Flatfishes to Climate Change” at 1:30pm. Cheung will also be chairing the session on ecology.
