The theme, ‘Nurturing Innovation Ecosystems for Sustainable Oceans & Societal Wellbeing’ will also include sub-themes which covers a wide range of topics including fish feed & nutrition, seafood security, climate change adaptations, marine conservation, and marine policy.
According to a statement issued by IPMB, the topic for ICOMSA 2016 is of global relevance and is particularly important for Malaysia where marine ecosystem services play a significant role in socio-economic development, aquaculture industry is growing at a fast rate and seafood consumption is high.
ICOMSA brings together international experts annually to share the advance scientific knowledge of the ocean ecosystem and identify the elements which can foster a culture of applying innovative solutions to problems associated with production of seafood resources, among others.
