Annual Shark Conference of the European Elasmobranch Association
For three days in October 2017, Amsterdam became the shark capitol of Europe, as 150 scientists, policymakers and nature conservationists from all over the world traveled to the Netherlands for the 21st Scientific Conference of the European Elasmobranch Association (EEA). The Dutch Elasmobranch Society (NEV) was the proud host of this year’s conference. They managed to fill a three-day program with more than 60 presentations by speakers from 24 countries. The entire event aptly took place where the EEA was originally founded: the grand building of the Royal Tropical Institute.
