After 36 years, 12 successful and productive symposia and thousands of participants, the Panhellenic Symposium on Oceanography and Fisheries enters into a new era. The new, MARINE & INLAND WATERS RESEARCH SYMPOSIUM continues the legacy of the older symposium, while keeping up with the new trends and state of the art scientific achievements in all fields of marine and inland waters research.

The MARINE AND INLAND WATERS RESEARCH SYMPOSIUM 2022 is supported by the HCMR Researchers Association and the Panhellenic Union of HCMR Employees and is organized under the auspices of the Hellenic Centre for Marine Research.
