About the Congress

Taking place every four years, the Congress has been held around the world, including Europe, the Americas and Asia since its inception in 1960. The Congress provides the scientific community with the latest on marine life research, extending the opportunity to discuss global and local issues and sharing successful initiatives. The 2012 IAC in South Africa took place in Cape Town. The torch has now been passed to the Vancouver Aquarium which—with the help of its 400+ staff and over 1,000 volunteers— is planning for an incredible experience from September 25 to 30, 2016.

Exciting IAN news to come.
