YOUMARES 8 Conference for young marine researchers in Kiel, Germany
Last week the YOUMARES 8 Conference for young marine researchers took place at Kiel University, in Germany. YOUMARES is an interdisciplinary scientific conference for Bachelor, Master, and PhD students, that gathers a wide range of topics related to the marine environment. The bottom-up organization by young researchers is one of the most characteristic aspects of this event, which was surrounded by an atmosphere of learning and networking.
FOL member Iratxe Rubio attended this international event where she had the opportunity of presenting a talk titled “Catch distribution shifts in tropical tuna fisheries”. She could also see up-to-date results by other young marine researchers on a variety of hot topics such as microplastics, regime shifts and resilience in marine communities, coastal ecosystem restoration, among others.
It was definitely a really enriching experience to share her research and learn from other scientists!
