This seminar is about the great fisheries in the Arctic and subarctic seas. Now these fisheries are dominated by the Arctic nations but the fishing grounds used to be exploited by many other nations before the extension of economic exclusive zones in the later part of the 20th century. The fisheries provided valuable protein and sailing experience for many great maritime countries. In this seminar it is explained why these grounds are so rich in fish and what might happen with global warming.
