A Symposium on Capelin - the canary in predicting effects of climate on the Arctic marine environment will be held in Bergen, Norway between 10th - 13th October 2022.
The purpose of this symposium (consisting of four themed sessions) is to establish the connection between capelin migration and environmental change, and identify the durations for tipping points and major disruptions in the Arctic marine environment.
