Abstract

The International Year of the Ocean in 1998 focused considerable attention on the important links between healthy oceans and healthy humans. From Monsoons to Microbes , a report released by the National Academy of Sciences in 1999, drew further attention to this important link. The issues included in the NAS report highlighted the need for development of a specific international research agenda. The International Center for Ocean and Human Health, founded by the Bermuda Biological Station for Research (BBSR) in 1998, hosted a meeting on indicators of ocean and human health, which served as a vehicle to develop an international research and training agenda on this very important topic. The meeting, held from November 16 to 19, 1999 in Bermuda, was jointly sponsored by the National Institutes of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) and the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO. It was organized by Dr. Anthony Knap (BBSR), Dr. Eric Dewailly (Laval University), Dr. Timothy Ford (Harvard School of Public Health) and Dr. William Suk (NIEHS). The aim of the meeting was threefold: • review the current state-of-the-art science on the use of indicators to link environmental changes, their effects on marine organisms and ultimately their effects on human
