NIWA is sponsoring the 25th International Congress for Conservation Biology.
NIWA staff are running three workshop 'Think Tanks' before the conference, these worksops are:
Implications of environmental change to Antarctic ecosystems 2, 3, 4 December, for more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Deep-sea coral research to enhance conservation 2, 3 December, for more information contact email@example.com
A new post doctoral fellow at NIWA – Dr Claire Guy – is investigating the ecological impacts of ocean acidification on key Antarctic shellfish.
Information on vulnerable marine invertebrates caught as bycatch in the Ross Sea toothfish fishery is helping to assess the environmental impacts of the fishery. It also contributes to knowledge of vulnerable species distribution in Antarctic waters.
Research has revealed key differences in seafloor communities and habitats inside and outside the Separation Point trawl fishing exclusion zone in Tasman Bay. These have important implications for valuable benthic fisheries in the area.
