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.
