Conference report

Conference report Reviews in Fish Biology and Fisheries 7, 135–136 (1997) Benguela Dynamics Symposium: Impacts of Variability on Shelf–Sea Environments and their Living Resources, 25–27 November 1996, Cape Town, South Africa The Benguela Ecology Programme (BEP) is a South African research initiative that started in 1982. It had the broad aim of providing scientific information on the nature and functioning of the Benguela ecosystem to assist in the utilization and management of its living resources. To scientists outside the BEP, its most visible products probably have been the volumes of proceedings of symposia held to mark the end of its first and second 5 year phases, BEP I and BEP II. These were published in the South African Journal of Marine Science in 1987 and 1992 respectively. The most recent symposium, the Benguela Dynamics Symposium, represented the end of the third phase. BEP III differed from its predecessors in that changing national socio-economic circumstances led to a substantial reduction in funding. Equally important, a decision was made for III to increase the focus on direct contributions to utilization and management of BEP the resources of the southern Benguela. We were invited to provide an account of the Benguela Dynamics Symposium. As Reviews in Fish Biology and Fisheries Springer Journals
