ICES/PAME Working Group on Integrated Ecosystem Assessment for the Central Arctic Ocean (WGICA)

Screen Shot 2018 02 19 at 11.28.00The ICES/PAME Working Group on Integrated Ecosystem Assessment for the Central Arctic Ocean (WGICA) held its inaugural meeting at ICES Headquarters, Copenhagen, Denmark, from 24 to 26 May 2016. The group recognized the important contributions made by the 2015 Workshop for the Integrated Ecosystem Assessment (IEA) of the Central Arctic Ocean (CAO), which concluded that the purpose of an IEA for the central Arctic Ocean was twofold: 1) provide a holistic and integrated view on the status, trends and pressures, and 2) contribute to implementation of the ecosystem approach to management of the central Arctic Ocean. The geographical scope of an IEA should include the central Arctic Ocean Large Marine Ecosystem (LME) and the relevant adjacent slope and shelf regions.

Meeting reports from WGICA can be accessed here.
