Project SponGES meets stakeholders

with No Comments

Representatives from the oil and gas industry, environmental– and fisheries directorates as well as research institutes are gathered in Oslo for the annual Forum for offshore environmental monitoring, a meeting organized by Norwegian Oil and Gas and the Norwegian Environment Agency. A close cooperation and an open dialogue between SponGES, industry and management bodies is of utmost importance to reach the main aim of SponGES – to develop an integrated ecosystem-based concept for the preservation and sustainable exploitation of vulnerable deep-sea sponge ecosystems of the North Atlantic. This forum for sure gives us a good push in the right direction!
