Knowledge based ocean management
Organised by the Wilson Center and Arctic Frontiers

Healthy and productive oceans are the foundation for arctic coastal communities. Knowledge-based dialogue on governance systems and best practices in order to handle rapid change in Arctic ecosystems is needed at the national level, across borders and in areas beyond national jurisdiction. Norway and the US are both among global leaders in fisheries management. In the course of a couple of decades, both have moved from a situation of depleted fish stocks to a situation of recovery and abundance. Behind this is a reform of fisheries management where stringent management plans are implemented, supported by investments in science and in strengthened enforcement of regulations.

What can be learnt from these success stories for other areas of oceans management?

Moderator: Liv Monica Stubholt, Lawyer at Selmer Law Firm 

Opening remarks: Mr. Ole Øvretveit, Director, Arctic Frontiers
