During the Estonian EU presidency, a high-profile symposium will be organised by two successful projects BONUS INSPIRE and BONUS BIO-C3 under the title: Science delivery for sustainable use of the Baltic Sea living resources. The three-day symposium will be held in Tallinn University Conference Center on 17-19 October 2017 and it will summarise and synthesise the recent scientific findings.

The Symposium will provide:

i) new evidences on the spatiotemporal dynamics of Baltic Sea biodiversity at various levels of organisation, and its relationship with changing environmental conditions,
ii) new basic knowledge on the ecology of the main commercial species – cod, herring, sprat and flounder, incl. habitat requirements, connectivity, migrations, species interactions and impact of external drivers, and                                       iii) improved assessment methods and tools for the management of marine living resources, thereby assisting to address several regional (HELCOM) and EU legislative frameworks.
