FishBase Symposium 2018 Fiskar på djupet!

Den 15 oktober är det dags för FishBase Symposium 2018 på Naturhistoriska riksmuseet.

Årets tema är Fiskar på djupet!

Djuphaven är några av de minst utforskade platserna i hela världen, och nya djuplevande

fiskarter upptäcks regelbundet. Samtidigt ökar exploateringstrycket, med bland annat

djuphavstrålning, oljeutvinning och gruvdrift. Vad är det för fisk som finns nere i djupen?

Vad vet vi egentligen om fiskar och fiske i djuphaven?

FishBase Sverige har bjudit in sju framstående experter som kommer att berätta om olika aspekter

på fiskar i djuphaven.
