Mundus maris at the FishBase Symposium in Vancouver

Can you believe that this year was already the 12th FishBase Symposium? It was held 8 September 2014 in Vancouver under the catchy motto “Big Old Data for Shiny New Insights – Using FishBase in Research”. FishBase is the most important scientific Internet portal of all fish in the world - and freely accessible.  “Spaceship Earth” was the title of the Mundus maris contribution. It focused on a summary of the International Roundtable we co-organised in May with sponsorship of the Peter Wall Institute for Advanced Studies at the University of British Columbia (UBC) in Vancouver. The talk was kindly delivered by Rashid Sumaila (Director of the Fisheries Economics Unit at UBC) for Cornelia. Click here for ppt. More info about the Symposium here.
