NZFSS Conference 2016

5/12/2016 12:00 a.m.

​The overarching theme of the conference was ‘Freshwater on the edge’ and reflected the push towards the edge of our scientific knowledge, including the scientific innovation to maintain and restore the health of some of our special freshwater resources.

In cases, we may be approaching tipping points for some of our lakes, rivers and estuaries. Can we bring them back from the edge? This conference provided a forum for sharing scientific and environmental knowledge with the concept of ‘ki uta ki tai’ running throughout. Leading edge science, restoring important ecosystems and looking to the future of freshwater science were just some of the topics covered at this years’ conference.
