Welcome
 
Kia ora and welcome to this year's New Zealand Marine Sciences Society and Oceania Chondrichthyan Society 2019 conference! We hope to see you in Dunedin on 3-5 July, where we will hold the conference at the University of Otago, New Zealand's oldest university.
 
Worldwide, our human footprint on the marine environment is escalating year by year. This year's theme "Our Changing Oceans" reflects the need to understand how our oceans are responding to anthropogenic impacts, and how best to manage such impacts. By bringing scientists and managers together from many different backgrounds, we will highlight the role of science in unravelling the changes that our coasts and oceans are experiencing and in informing evidence-based decisions while underlining the key role of management in safeguarding the future of our oceans.
 
We have an exciting line up of guest speakers and anticipate an excellent programme on a wide variety of topics. The social functions will also be a great opportunity to connect with new colleagues, stimulate discussion and collaboration, and catch up with old friends.
 
We look forward to a productive few days of learning, sharing, thinking and discussing while enjoying the fun times and beautiful sights Dunedin has to offer!
