Australian and New Zealand Marine Science Conference

September 15 - September 20

Please join us for the joint AMSA & NZMSS 2024 Conference, where marine scientists and managers from across Australia, New Zealand, and the Indo-Pacific will come together to advance our understanding of the region’s unique marine environment during a period of uncertainty.

The ‘Navigating Uncertainty for a Future Sustainable Ocean’ theme is aimed at bringing scientists and managers together to discuss the latest research that can guide society towards a future sustainable ocean. The next 12 months are predicted to be the warmest on record and with so many climate records being broken, there is significant uncertainty in what this means for the environment, economy, culture, and society. As a scientific community we can help managers, policy makers, and politicians by providing high quality science and advice on what needs to be done.

This is an international marine science forum that will welcome and provide a space to share traditional knowledge and western science. Together, this will provide a strong foundation for understanding marine ecosystems and inform marine management decisions. AMSA 2024 also aims to foster student and early career researcher participation, by providing a platform for professional development and networking in a supportive, inclusive space. AMSA and NZMSS meetings promote a culture of inclusion and bring together a diverse range of delegates working in all fields of marine science, conservation, and management.

The AMSA-NZMSS 2024 Conference will be held at the Hotel Grand Chancellor, in the heart of the Hobart waterfront area, close to many accommodation options, dining, breweries, gin distilleries, transport and plenty of entertainment options. Stay for an extra weekend and attend the Aboriginal led walking tour of Hobart, visit Mona, go mountain biking in Wellington Park, dive the Giant Kelp forests, visit either Bruny or Maria Islands, or take on one of the many great multi-day hikes!

We look forward to seeing you in Nipaluna, Hobart, Tasmania in 2024!
