The European Elasmobranch Association in Plymouth

The European Elasmobranch Association (EEA) was established in 1996 as a non-profit share-holding organisation for co-ordinating the activities of national European organisations dedicated to the study, management or conservation of chondrichthyans (sharks, skates, rays and chimaeras).

The EEA is an association of organisations, not individuals.

The Annual of this year will be in Plymouth, hosted by the Shark Trust. The theme of the conference is: “From science to policy: How applied studies of elasmobranch biology can provide the evidence to support stock assessments, advice and managem ent decisions”.

The opening address will be delivered by Fiona Harrison, Deputy Chief Scientific Advisor for the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs. Keynote presentations will be given by Sarah Fowler, founder of both the EEA and the Shark Trust and a leading voice in global shark conservation management, and Clinton Duffy whose recent White Shark tagging work, in collaboration with Malcolm Francis, has identified formerly unimaginable seasonal migrations patterns in the waters off New Zealand.

We will be there, and looking forward to it!
