Welcome

“Ecopath 30 years – Modelling ecosystem dynamics: beyond boundaries with EwE” conference and workshops was held in Barcelona, Spain from 4 to 14 November 2014, to showcase thirty years of progress using the Ecopath approach in different fields: fisheries management, marine conservation, ecosystem dynamics, climate impacts, and ecosystem-based management, as well as to introduce exciting new facilities of the approach. The gathering was an international scientific reunion on ecosystem modelling using the Ecopath and Ecosim approach (www.ecopath.org).

The Ecopath 30 years events were held at Institute of Marine Science (ICM-CSIC) Passeig Marítim de la Barceloneta, 37-49. E-08003 Barcelona (Spain); Tel. (+34) 93 230 95 00; Fax. (+34) 93 230 95 55; Website: www.icm.csic.es. The event is now done and over with, and we thoroughly enjoyed.
