Scotland's International Marine Conference 2019

Scotland’s vision is for clean, healthy, safe, productive and diverse seas that are managed to meet the long term needs of nature and people.

This is only achievable through strong national action and international cooperation.

Scotland’s International Marine Conference 2019 will focus on current national and international actions to protect the marine environment. Through discussion we will aim to identify emerging threats to our seas and consider what new measures are required to protect the marine environment for future generations. 


Abstracts are invited for conference presentations, for all conference sessions, and for the poster session. Abstracts should be no more than 350 words and include the title of the presentation or poster, the authors name, contact details, organisation and the preferred session for conference presentations. Abstracts should be submitted to before 0900 on 10 December. Submitted abstracts will be reviewed in and authors will be informed by 21 December if they have been successful. Marine Scotland reserves the right change the session to which a presentation is allocated. Please note that this conference is open to the general public and content should therefore be presented with this in mind.
