Oceans Past Initiative (OPI)

The Oceans Past Initiative (OPI) is a global research network for marine historical research.

Their goal is to enhance knowledge and understanding of how the diversity, distribution and abundance of marine life in the world’s oceans has changed over the long term to better indicate future changes and possibilities.

OPI welcomes anyone interested in the history of humankind’s interactions with life in the oceans including :

  •  paleo-ecologists and climatologists
  •  archaeologists
  • marine environmental historians
  • economic historians
  • oral historians
  • istorical ecologists
  • isheries historians
  • marine environmental and fisheries policy makers and managers


Conference "Historical perpsectives on marine ecosystem, fisheries and futures"

Rationale : Life in the oceans is changing more rapidly in the current century than ever before. As these changes occur it is more imperative than ever to understand what came before to better frame management of those systems. Oceans Past brings together scholars and practitioners interested in documenting and understanding changes in marine systems and human maritime interactions in past centuries and millennia. The 8th Oceans Past Conference, Historical Perspectives on Marine Ecosystems, Fisheries, and Futures, will enable continued scholarly communication and international exchange towards a fuller understanding of the past, the present status, and potential trajectories of our living marine resources.


Invitation : The conference welcomes researchers, practitioners, policy-makers and students of all disciplines under the unifying view of our oceans as networks of social-ecological or coupled human-nature systems. Prere encouraged that explore large-scale and long-term case studies highlighting dynamic changes and interactions in past marine ecosystems, the impacts and legacy effects of human activities on them, the sustainability of iterative or co-evolutionary relationships and, where possible, likely future directions and management implications. If you have an interest in the history of human interactions with life in the ocean and implications for policy and management, sign up now to attend OP VIII in 2020 !
