The MASTS Annual Science Meeting:Sea Change – changing seas, changing times"

The 2017 MASTS ASM will promote the latest advances in marine science, good governance and using sound science responsibly, and revisiting the vision: 'Clean, healthy, safe, productive, biologically diverse marine environments, managed to meet the needs of people and nature'

This cross-disciplinary meeting brings together members of the marine science community, with the aim of promoting and communicating research excellence and forging new scientific collaborations. The cross-disciplinary nature of the event as well as the high calibre of the selected talks means that scientists can broaden their knowledge in marine science as well as benefit from expertise and ideas gained in a range of fields other than their own.

Science presentations and e-poster sessions will take place on the first two days (Wednesday 4th October and Thursday 5th October), together with Plenary Speakers and opportunities to network.

On the third day the MASTS_ASM will host a number of meetings and workshops (Friday 6 October)
