The Oregon Institute of Marine Biology’s Spring 2020 Seminar Series has moved online.  The public is welcome to sit in through Zoom at no cost.

On Friday, May 29, the series features a 9 a.m. talk from Ralf Doering, who divides his time between the Thuenen-Institute of Sea Fisheries in Germany and the Oregon State University Department of Economics, speaking on “How climate change impacts fishing fleets economically – experiences, uncertainties, and the tricky world of scenario analysis.”  Dr. Doering is head of the economics unit at the Institute of Sea Fisheries of the Johann Heinrich v. Thuenen-Federal Research Institute for Rural Areas, Forestry and Fisheries in Hamburg, Germany. He advises the German government and the European Commission in all fisheries related issues and issues of the implementation of the ecosystem-based approach in marine ecosystems.  He is also lecturing in marine economics at OSU.

Most of the seminars in this series will be on Fridays at 1 p.m.—this talk is the exception due to time differences and Dr. Doering’s location. The seminars in this series are free, but are password protected.  For information, or to request the password, contact organizer Aaron Galloway,  Be sure to allow 24 hours’ notice.
