ISA Annual Meeting, July 2015

Phil Weaver and David Johnson attended the International Seabed Authority’s annual meeting in Kingston, Jamaica where they presented the MIDAS project, including recent work on developing a Strategic Environmental Management Plan for the Atlantic basin of the Area. They were joined by Professor Pedro Martinez from the Senckenberg Institute (a MIDAS partner) who presented some recent results from a cruise to the central Pacific.

David also participated in a side event at the same ISA meeting, organised by the Secretariat to the Convention on Biological Diversity, where he represented the GOBI partnership to help promote the description of ecologically or biologically significant areas of the oceans (EBSAs).
