Polar cod & Petroleum in a international meeting!

What is the scientific community doing these days in the Arctic? What are the challenges and risks for Arctic ecosystems? What are the effects of petroleum related compounds on eggs, larva, juveniles and adults? Is the Arctic more sensitive than other regions. We are certainly not (yet) finding answers to these questions… but by looking at a special Arctic fish – the polar cod- from all possible angles, we hope to come a bit closer to the answers.

A fantastic opportunity to share knowledge and develop new research ideas around this tiny but so important fish and the challenges of man-made activities in the Arctic.
