Sea and Society Talks är en serie lunchseminarier som tar avstamp i FN:s hållbarhetsmål för 2030. Seminarierna länkar samman mål 14 som rör havet och dess resurser med något av de övriga 16 målen. Tanken är att kort presentera pågående forskning men också bjuda in till diskussion och debatt om hur vi på Göteborgs universitet och Chalmers kan bidra till att nå ett hållbart samhälle.

Next Talk - 10 december 2019

Eva Maria Jernsand: Can innovation arenas for tourism contribute to development of coastal societies?

Tourism creates opportunities for development, but it also creates conflicts of goals and interests, for example between conservation and economic aspects. Two concepts frequently used in the debate are innovation and collaboration. Different actors must contribute their knowledge to create opportunities and solve problems.In other areas, such as urban planning, there are various arenas for innovation, however, in tourism they are rare.

This talk presents an overview of co-creation and innovation literature in tourism. It also provides examples of innovations arenas, such as cities, science parks and labs, for guidance and inspiration, particularly on the subject of maritime tourism.

Eva Maria Jernsand, researcher in marketing and tourism at School of Business, Economics and Law, links together Sustainable Development Goal 9 (Innovation, Industry and Infrastructure) with Sustainable Development Goal 17 (Partnerships for the Goals).

Previous Talks

Ellen Schagerström: Sea cucumbers in multi-trophic aquaculture – could it be possible in Sweden?

Currently, conventional aquaculture in open cages provides a significant amount of protein, but at the same time, the environment is adversely affected by nutritional release via feed for fish, crayfish and mussels. But the environment is also adversely affected by genetic, pathological and parasitic interactions with wild populations and by the use of wild-caught fish in feed production. Thus, there is an urgent need to develop new, high-productivity cultivation models without exceeding the system-specific carrying capacity.
In this seminar I will present a multi-trophic system which could potentially work in Sweden.


Ellen Schagerström is engaged in the SWEMARC project Cirkulär, studying the lifecycle of the red sea cucumber Parastichopus tremulus and attempting to develop a breeding protocol for this species. She has previously been working with reproduction in macroalgae, with emphasis on fucoids in the Baltic Sea. She is currently doing a post doc at The University of Gothenburg.


This talk links Sustainable Development Goal 14 (life below water) with goal 12 (Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns).

Thomas Dahlgren: Protection of the last frontiers - Why should Sweden be politically engaged in the deep sea and Antarctica?

There are a lot of international conventions, informal and formal legislative "bodies" where Sweden is engaged. In our immediate surroundings we find OSPAR and HELCOM.
BBNJ and CCAMLR are two other "bodies" where Sweden currently contribute. What are they and why has Sweden committed to contribute to this work, far away from the shallow waters surrounding our coastlines? In this seminar I will give a brief overview of the history and current areas of conflicts within BBNJ and CCAMLR.

Thomas Dahlgren is engaged in projects studying the impact on the marine environment from industrial activities including deep-sea mining, offshore wind farms, oil and gas exploitation and aquaculture. He is an expert in marine biodiversity with emphasis on bottom living invertebrates. He is an associate professor at The University of Gothenburg.

Jonas Pålsson: Symphony - a tool for ecosystem-based Marine Spatial Planning

Many human activities share the sea and as competition grows, marine and maritime spatial planning (MSP) has emerged as a holistic management model.

In this Sea and Society Talk, Jonas Pålsson from the Swedish Agency for Marine and Water Management (HaV) will present the digital tool Symphony[MOU1]. It is a transparent and straightforward instrument, to be used in order to understand, illustrate and identify the environmental pressure on marine ecological values. Symphony calculates the cumulative impact from the sum or the average of all pressures. One of the challenges lies in comparing and assessing pressures and effects fairly.

Herman Andersson and Håkan Eggert: Sustainable management of lost fishing gear

Marine plastic pollution is a growing problem. Fishing gear like nets and ropes are among the most common plastic debris found in beach litter surveys. Abandoned, lost or otherwise discarded fishing gear may cause ghost fishing or other harm. How can it be managed?

In this Sea and Society Talk, Herman Andersson and Håkan Eggert from the Department of Economics will analyze various possible policy instruments to reduce marine pollution from both recreational and commercial fishing gear. They discuss the pros and cons of potential approaches like extended producer responsibility, deposit-refund systems and actively searching and pick up of abandoned, lost or otherwise discarded fishing gear.

Ling and Martinsson: Nautical routes to social complexity

How did the development of watercraft technology and long-distance exchange affect the social complexity in Scandinavian bronze age societies? And are their similarities with the Native American groups Haida and Chumash?

In this Sea and Society Talk, archeologist Johan Ling and photographer Tyrone Martinsson presented their research project comparing these different maritime ranked societies, and what we can learn from traditional ecological knowledge.

Allison Perrigo: Biodiversity on land and in the seas

Earth s biodiversity inhabits everything from the deepest troughs in the sea, to the mountaintops of the Andes and Himalaya and even extends up into the atmosphere. But how do the UN's SDGs deal with biodiversity? Goal 14 (Life Under Water) and Goal 15 (Life on Land) explicitly address our need to understand and protect Earth's biodiversity in a framework that will allow this diversity to exist into the future.

Hear Allison Perrigo from the GGBC talk about this research, and how it all ties into the SDGs:
