Meet Our Invited Speakers

Hellenic Centre for Marine Research Institute of Marine Biological Resources and Inland Waters, Greece.
Paraskevi Karachle is a Main Researcher at the HCMR. She is an expert on food ecology and fish eco-morphology, as well as on marine invasive species, with emphasis to fish. In recent years she has dealt with the involvement of interested parties (stakeholders), mainly fishermen, in participatory processes in order to develop an adaptive management process. She has been also working with citizen scientists in order to enhance scientific knowledge on invasive species’ records, expansion and impacts. She is the coordinator of the EU-funded project “PROTOMEDEA: Towards the establishment of Marine Protected Area Networks in the Eastern Mediterranean” (www.protomedea.eu). Within the project mapping of existing Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) and planning of proposed MPA networks will be performed in two areas of the Eastern Mediterranean, the Aegean Sea and Cyprus.

Institute of Biogeography and Genetic Resources, Federal Center for Integrated Arctic Reseach, Russian Academy of Sciences, Russia.
At present, my main research interests are in the areas of evolutionary biogeography and ecology, including the following topics: (I) evolutionary processes in large rivers and geothermal springs; (II) taxon-specific and environment-induced shifts in evolutionary rates; (III) cryptic glacial refugia in high-latitude areas; (IV) climate changes and keystone taxa of oligotrophic rivers; (V) origin of faunas on remote oceanic islands. The objects are insects, freshwater molluscs and fishes.

symposium information

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

     Welcome to the official website of the First International Marine & Freshwater Sciences Symposium (MarFresh2018) which will be held on 18-21 October 2018 in Kemer/Antalya, Turkey.

     Water is crucial for all living organisims that covers almost 80% of our planet. Although productivity of water resources unproportionally distributed, all of them host vast biodiversity but only very minor part in freshwaters is available for human life. Aquatic life in these ecosystems are progressively threatened by invasive species, climate change and habitat destructions mainly through anthropogenic pollution, water abstraction, unpredictable fluctuations in water level and invasive species. All these impacts interact and enhance uncertainty about the availability of aquatic life.

     Our most important goal is to ensure a sufficient supply of good-quality aquatic life and water for future generations. However, the maintenance and management of aquatic ecosystems require the close cooperation of scientists, politicians and stakeholders, and must arise from the best available knowledge and experience provided by ecologists. We hope that the first symposium on Marine and Freshwater Sciences will be an ecosystem based symposium including also studies on protected areas, tourism economy, energy, natural sources, and education and offer an opportunity to bring together experts from various disciplines and contribute substantially to increasing our knowledge of the theoretical and practical aspects of marine and freshwater sciences.

symposium location

 Mirage Park Resort   Kemer Antalya

The queen of Göynük is a pearl, it is where nature offers all its beauty. From the stretching pine trees of the Taurus Mountains to the orange groves of the lowlands.This combination of mountain and sea; in conjunction with the hotels simple but elegant style, no doubt makes this hotel the perfect destination for a peaceful getaway for you and your family.
