Minister McConalogue welcomes International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES) to Dublin

The Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine Charlie McConalogue has today welcomed delegates to the annual conference of the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES)  taking place at Dublin’s Aviva Conference Centre Dublin from 19- 22 September.

Ireland is hosting this prestigious international marine conference this week at which leading Marine scientists will present, discuss and debate the latest cutting-edge science supporting the sustainable use of our oceans.

Over 500 people are expected to attend the conference in person with many more registered to attend remotely/online. The event is organised by Ireland’s Marine Institute (MI) on behalf of the host country, supported by Bord Iascaigh Mhara (BIM) in collaboration with the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES) in Copenhagen.

Welcoming conference delegates attending at the Aviva today in person and online, Minister McConalogue said:   “Ireland greatly values the work of ICES which is critical to support the sustainable use of our oceans. After virtual conferences for the past two years, we are delighted that Ireland has been chosen to host the first in person ICES conference in 3 years where some of the world’s leading marine scientists can share and discuss cutting edge research and establish important partnerships and relationships. This sharing of research is more important now than ever before with the oceans being vital to the economy, environment and our daily lives here in Ireland and globally. Sharing and discussing research will ensure we fully understand the potential of our ocean and how to sustainably manage that potential for current and future generations.”

The session will examine the climate change impacts on North Atlantic/Irish waters with contributions from marine scientists – Professor Dave Reid, Marine Institute; Eimear Manning, National Youth Council of Ireland; Dr Grace Cott, UCD and Dr Gerard McCarthy NUI Maynooth.  Temperature changes in the Atlantic, change in distribution of fish stocks, impacts on coastal habitats which store carbon and coastal communities, and their livelihoods will be the central focus of the session.
