The 2017 ICES/PICES international symposium on “Drivers of dynamics of small pelagic fish resources” (Victoria, Canada) produced two publications in primary journals. The special issue on “Drivers of dynamics of small pelagic fish resources: environmental control of long-term changes” was published in January 2019 in Deep-Sea Research II (Vol. 159, pp. 1-182) and includes the Editorial and 15 original research papers. The theme section on “Drivers of dynamics of small pelagic fish resources: biology, management and human factors” was published in May 2019 in Marine Ecology Progress Series (Vol. 617-618, pp. 1-376) and includes the Introduction and 22 original research papers.

Presenters at this year’s symposium will have the opportunity to submit their papers (oral and poster) to special issues. Marine Ecology Progress Series (MEPS) and Canadian Journal of Fisheries and Aquatic Science (CJFAS) will begin processing submissions in December 2022 through January 2023. More information will soon follow.
