Workshop 1
Biological consequences of a decrease in sea ice in Arctic and Sub-Arctic seas


Anne Hollowed (USA)
Harold Loeng (Norway)

Invited Speakers:

Trond Kristiansen (Norway)
Hyunju Seo (Korea)

This workshop will review life history information and habitat associations to assess the risk of immigration and settlement of new biological populations in the Arctic and surrounding shelf seas in response to the retreat of sea ice. Criteria necessary to establish new species in the Arctic Ocean and surrounding areas will be developed and compared to expected conditions based on climate scenarios. Ways for cooperation in information sharing between groups charged with managing the Arctic will be explored and the results of the workshop will be reported to both PICES and ICES scientists working on these issues.
