The 5th Symposium on the Ocean in a High-CO2 World is being organized by the Pedro Ruiz Gallo National University in cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). This Symposium follows the symposia in Paris in 2004, Monaco in 2008, Monterey in 2012, and Hobart in 2016, which were all key events for the international community of researchers studying ocean acidification and related stressors. The 5th symposia will maintain the traditional focus of the four previous symposia and look at ocean acidification and associated impacts on marine organisms, ecosystems, and biogeochemical cycles. Ocean acidification will be considered in combination with other global changes such as warming and deoxygenation. The Symposium is inter-disciplinary and contributions are expected to detail advances in observations, modelling, field and laboratory studies. Dedicated sessions will emphasize processes and impacts as well as consequences for humans and their potential responses through policy and management.


The main objective is to achieve a better understanding of the impacts of ocean acidification on different marine ecosystems, as well as on the aquaculture industry; promote the participation of interest groups and the socialization of the problem, mainly the representatives of governments and decision makers, with the aim of adopting a state policy to deal with the acidification of the ocean, in accordance with UNESCO SDG 14 on Life Below Water whose target 14.3 says  “minimize and address the impacts of ocean acidification, including through enhanced scientific cooperation at all levels”

The 5th International Symposium will bring together scientists, academics, government representatives, aquaculture entrepreneurs and fish farmers, and students from many countries around the world to present, analyze and evaluate the most relevant results related to ocean acidification and its multiple stress factors, the situation current ocean acidification and various approaches to mitigate, forecast and model capacities, as well as experimentation.
