Proceedings of the Pro Mare Symposium on Polar Marine Ecology, Trondheim, Norway, 12-16 May 1990
AbstractPro Mare, the Norwegian Research Program for Marine Arctic Ecology, began in 1984 and was concluded in 1989. The aim of the program was to increase our understanding of how pelagic ecosystems function in the Arctic seas, thereby improving the basis for government decision-making as well as elevating scientific competence both with respect to fish stock management and for evaluation of the effects of pollution. The program gave priority to longterm research on systems ecology, with some emphasis on physiological ecology. It accordingly operated in the border zone between pure and applied research with emphasis in terms of methodology on the former. Pro Mare focused on the Barents Sea and the adjacent coastal waters of Svalbard.
