To conserve the world’s oceans we must go beyond science and use it to inform policy and management to catalyze change. The International Marine Conservation Congress (IMCC) brings together conservation professionals and students to develop new and powerful tools to further marine conservation science and policy.
With over 700 marine conservation professionals and students in attendance, IMCC is the most important international event for anyone involved or interested in marine conservation. The meeting brings together marine conservationists from many walks of life including but not limited to scientists, practitioners, educators, policy-makers, artists and journalists.
IMCC6 takes place in the sailing city of Kiel, Germany. Join us in Kiel as we come together to help Make Marine Science Matter!

Call for Early Abstracts! (IIFET Link)
Early abstract submission is open until 10 Dec! There are over 40 themes and special sessions to choose from!
The early abstract submission period is mainly intended for those who need an acceptance decision soon in order to apply for travel support from the conference organizers or other sources and who need more time to secure a visa to Spain. Authors who do not require an early decision may submit and abstract during the regular abstract submission period which will open 11 Dec 2019 and close 1 February 2020.
If you are from AND reside in a developing country and wish to apply for travel support from the conference organizers (or other funding sources with early deadlines), please submit your abstract during the early abstract submission period. We are seeking developing country support funds but the number of travel grants we can offer is limited, so please expand your search for support to other agencies. The quality of abstracts will be a primary determinant in our competitive selection process. We prioritize support to citizens and residents of Low-Income and Lower-Middle-Income countries and, in some situations, can provide more limited support to Upper-Middle-Income country participants. Visit the World Bank site to find lists of countries in these categories.

TBTI has been promoting the notion of ‘Blue Justice’ through various platforms. One of our most prominent efforts was the registration of Blue Justice for Small-Scale Fisheries as a voluntary commitment to the Ocean Conference to Support the Implementation of Sustainable Development Goal 14 (SDG 14). Our pledge joins more than 1,400 other voluntary commitments to save our oceans, all registered on a UN platform.
The commitment, which is part of our ongoing ‘Blue Justice’ campaign, calls attention to the current discourse about Blue Growth/Blue Economy, which poses potential risks to the rights of small-scale fisheries to the fishing livelihoods, which include access to fisheries resources, to coastal and ocean space, and to local, national and international markets. The campaign is urging for the social justice of small-scale fisheries be recognized not only as a basic right, but also an important condition for the realization of the UN Sustainable Goals and implementation of the SSF Guidelines.
