The Pelagic Complex conference was the major event in the Faroese Chairmanship of the Nordic Fisheries Cooperation 2010. The overall goal of the conference was to facilitate a scientifically-based and politically relevant discussion on the future of the pelagic fisheries in the North East Atlantic Ocean. This Proceedings presents an overview of the presentations and discussions that comprised the conference. The theme of the conference still remains politically contentious and the goal of creating a platform for joint dialogue on the future of the pelagic fisheries in the region is more relevant than ever and should serve as an excellent example for future activities designed to foster dialogue and renewed collaboration.

Chairmanships conclusions and recommendations

The overall goal of the conference was to facilitate a scientifically-based and politically relevant discussion on the future of the North East Atlantic pelagic fisheries. In this context, the title of the conference contained three key words: Challenges, Opportunities and Future. In order to adequately and appropriately explore these issues, the intent of the conference was to attract a broad and well-qualified participation from scientists, academics, political and business leaders, who were capable of providing accurate summations of the current situation regarding the pelagic fisheries and to address the many questions that are necessary to clarify and forge a prospective, scientifically-based policy for the sustainable development of the pelagic fisheries.
