Subject:     2nd Call for 2008 BASIS Symposium in Seattle
Date:     Fri, 28 Mar 2008 18:44:25 -0700

Dear Colleagues,

Please let us remind you of the International Symposium on the 
"Bering-Aleutian Salmon International Surveys (BASIS )  to be held in 
Seattle, WA, USA on November 23-25, 2008 
(  The deadline of abstract 
submission is April 28, 2008.  It would be highly appreciated if you 
could forward this information to those who may be interested in the 

NPAFC International Symposium on Bering-Aleutian Salmon International 
Surveys (BASIS):  Climate Change, Production Trends, and Carrying 
Capacity of Pacific Salmon in the Bering Sea and Adjacent Waters

November 23-25, 2008

Seattle Sheraton Hotel, Seattle, WA, USA


Dramatic fluctuations in the ocean growth and survival of many Asian and 
North American salmon populations over the past decade have been 
attributed to changes in the Bering Sea and other marine ecosystems.  
The absence of scientific observations for salmon, ecologically related 
species, and environmental conditions in the North Pacific Ocean has 
limited our understanding of these changes and how they affect salmon 
populations and economies around the Pacific Rim.  International 
research efforts to address these issues were developed by the NPAFC, as 
part of its Science Plan.  The research plan, called BASIS (the 
Bering-Aleutian Salmon International Survey), began in 2002 as a 
coordinated program of cooperative research on Pacific salmon in the 
Bering Sea.  The goal of BASIS research was to clarify the mechanisms of 
biological response by salmon to the conditions caused by climate change 
in the Bering Sea.  The purpose of the present symposium is to summarize 
BASIS research conducted during 2002 to 2006 and increase our 
understanding about how climate change will effect salmon growth and 
survival in the North Pacific Ocean.

1. Overviews of Climate Change, Bering Sea Ecosystems, and Salmon Production
2. Biological Responses by Salmon to Climate and Ecosystem Dynamics
    2-1. Migration and Distribution of Salmon
    2-2. Food Production and Salmon Growth
    2-3. Feeding Habits and Trophic Interactions
    2-4. Production Trends and Carrying Capacity of Salmon


The Symposium will be held at Sheraton Seattle Hotel (1400 Sixth Avenue, 
Seattle, WA 98101, USA; on 
November 23-25, 2008, following the 16th NPAFC Annual Meeting.
