Welcome to the XII International Conference on the Fisheries Oceanology! If you still not announced your desire to participate - hasten, please, until it is not too late to join us in the most important event of the Russian fisheries science in this newborn Millenium.

The beginning of a new century and a new millennium, as well as a centenary of ICES are the good reasons to sum up advances in oceanology -one of the youngest among natural sciences. Particularly because last decades were characterized by intensive introduction of new methods, instruments and approaches. It is a time to look back on the history of investigations, to assess former materials and results, to outline further perspectives, and to coordinate scientific efforts. Where we are, what direction we are moving? Such a problem exists particularly in fisheries oceanology studying an influence of environmental parameters on fish stocks, which are depleting everywhere around the world.

Intensive development of the Russian (Soviet) fisheries oceanology took place during last 40 years with a peak at about mid-80-ies, when up to 200 expeditions were carried out ANNUALLY to investigate commercial fish resources and factors influencing on its variability. Now all these mostly undescribed data are available to scrutinise in details. It's evident they contain answers to many questions we are trying to deal with, and we have to solve in next future with modern technologies used. There is a good possibility to organise our cooperation.

On 9 - 14 September 2002 in Svetlogorsk (a small resort city on shore of the south Baltic Sea), Kaliningrad region, Russia, the XII-th Conference on Fishery Oceanography dedicated to the ICES centenary will take place.

The Conference Objectives are as following:

fishery stocks dynamics and its forecasting based on oceanographic data;
fishery and oceanological monitoring over the World oceans and seas;
oceanographic processes modeling in fishery ecosystems;
modern information technologies in fishery-oceanographic investigations;
human impact in biological oceanography with particular reference to the protection of fish stock and biological diversity.
These topics would be examined within the following main themes:

Fishery oceanology and its methodology: past and future
Oceanological background of fishery stock dynamics
Human impact in fishery oceanography
This conference provides a great possibility to analyze results of previous intensive studies, and to exchange opinions about further perspectives of cooperation between sides involved into fishery management and fisheries forecast aiming sustainable exploitation of commercial stocks and protection of environment. Everybody is welcome to participate in this discussion, even in case you will arrive without any presentation. If you decided to visit the Conference it is still not too late to inform us about your intention. Only be in hurry please to avoid problems with hotel bookings, because it is a resort town an the resort season.

oceanographic aspects of the species introducers' problem and biodiversity protection in fishery ecosystems, as well as other aspects of human impact;
fishery oceanology educative process.
