organisation profile

ICES is the organisation that coordinates and promotes marine research in the North Atlantic. This includes adjacent seas such as the Baltic Sea and North Sea.
ICES acts as a meeting point for a community of more than 1600 marine scientists from 20 countries around the North Atlantic.

Scientists working through ICES gather information about the marine ecosystem. As well as filling gaps in existing knowledge, this information is also developed into unbiased, non-political advice.

ICES' advice is then used by the 20 member countries, which fund and support ICES, to help them manage the North Atlantic Ocean and adjacent seas.

Gaining knowledge
ICES plans and coordinates marine research through a system of committees, more than 100 working groups, symposia, and an Annual Science Conference. Most meetings take place either at the ICES Headquarters in Copenhagen, Denmark, or in the member countries.

Producing Advice
ICES is the prime source of advice on the marine ecosystem to governments and international regulatory bodies that manage the North Atlantic Ocean and adjacent seas.

Promotion
ICES publishes its scientific information and advice in reports, publications (including the ICES Journal of Marine Science), CD-ROMs and on the ICES Website.

The Secretariat
ICES has been based in Copenhagen, Denmark, since 1902. Today, we have a Secretariat of 41 staff who provide scientific, administrative and secretarial support to the ICES Community.

Member Countries
The 20 member countries of ICES are:
Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Iceland, Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Spain, Sweden, the United Kingdom and the United States of America.

The affiliates are: Australia, Chile, Greece, New Zealand, Peru and South Africa.
Non governmental organisations with formal observer status are: Worldwide Fund for Nature and BirdLife International.
