I am currently in Palma de Mallorca representing HAI Norge at the 13th annual conference of the European Elasmobrach Association (EEA) – 19.-21. Nov. 2009.
Participants from more than 20 countries are currently meeting in Palma to present and discuss current research on elasmobranch fishes. Among the topics are ecology, management and conservation, fisheries, taxonomy and population genetics.
19.11.09 – HAI Norge is now an official member of the EEA! After reviewing the membership application, the EEA board announced its decision to grant HAI Norge membership during the Annual General Meeting (AGM).
During the two days 37 scientific talks and more than 50 scientific posters were presented, including my talk about the first HAI Norge project on “Genetic diversity of basking sharks” (for details please see the project page soon).
