The 2014 International Marine Conservation Congress (IMCC) represents the third stand- alone marine conservation meeting of the SCB. The first IMCC in Washington DC, 2009 and the second in Victoria, each attracted over 1200 participants. This congress, as others before it, will serve to unite the marine conservation community to develop new and powerful tools to further marine conservation science and policy.

Specific topics to be investigated include:

  • Food security and the oceans (sustainable fisheries and aquaculture)
  • Marine renewable and non-renewable energy
  • Climate, ocean acidification, and the changing oceans
  • Advancing marine conservation through international treaties
  • Effective conservation planning (to include EBM and MPAs, cumulative impacts)
  • Communicating marine conservation (marine conservation awareness and outreach, social media)
  • Participation in marine conservation science (e.g. citizen and indigenous science)
  • Marine tourism
