<h2>About OPI</h2>
<img class="in-article-img" src="assets/img/image1.jpg">
<p>The Oceans Past Initiative (OPI) is a global research network for marine historical research. Our goal is to enhance knowledge and understanding of how the diversity, distribution and abundance of marine life in the world’s oceans has changed over the long term to better indicate future changes and possibilities. OPI welcomes anyone interested in the history of humankind’s interactions with life in the oceans including paleo-ecologists and climatologists, archaeologists, marine environmental historians, economic historians, oral historians, historical ecologists, fisheries historians, and marine environmental and fisheries policy makers and managers.</p>
</div>
<div id="board">
<h2>Steering Committee & Executive Board</h2>
<p>The network will commit itself to coordinate resources and provide useful information to the marine historical research community, such as by circulating news about grant calls and funding opportunities, information on recent papers in the field, announce successful projects, and distribute information for students on courses related to marine historical research.It is planned for OPI to become a venue where researchers worldwide interested in historical studies could virtually meet and discuss relevant issues globally. OPI can provide an umbrella, under which already completed, currently running, and also planned projects and initiatives can be linked, and make their results available for decision-makers and the interested public.</p>

<p>Historical research is playing an increasingly important role in marine sciences. Historical data are also used in policy making and marine resource management, and have helped to address the issue of shifting baselines for numerous species and ecosystems. Although many important research questions still remain unanswered, tremendous developments in conceptual and methodological approaches are expected to contribute to a comprehensive understanding of the global history of human interactions with life in the seas. Based on our experiences and knowledge from the “History of Marine Animal Populations” project, the Oceans Past Initiative (OPI) has been established to assist in bringing together and connecting researchers interested in marine historical studies worldwide.</p>

<h2><i>Historical Perspectives on the Elements and Dynamics of the Marine Socio-Ecological System</i></h2>
<h3>16-18 May 2017 | Sesimbra, Portugal</h3>
<hr />
More info: <a href="http://www.escolademar.pt/oceanspastvi/">http://www.escolademar.pt/oceanspastvi/</a> <br><br>
<p>Oceans Past VII will be a celebration of Oceans Past like never before. You will meet
colleagues from around the world, have direct access to politicians
and managers, and enjoy special sessions, mini-symposiums, and
exhibitions. Come join us for a defining conference!</p>
<p>
<b> Call for papers:</b> The submission of oral and poster papers encompassing, but not
limited to, the following topics is encouraged:
Meanwhile, in what could be dubbed a sea change of history, environmental historians are also studying human engagement with the underwater realm. Historians, including archaeologists, sociologists, and geographers, have engaged with marine scientists in an interdisciplinary effort to bring together the long-term study of human and animal worlds. Thanks to this collaborative effort, researchers have not only identified, but in many cases resolved, the problem of the &lsquo;shifting baseline&rsquo; by pushing back the chronological limits of our knowledge.</p>
<p>
Call for papers: The submission of oral and poster papers encompassing, but not
limited to, the following topics is encouraged:
<ul> ❖ Oceans prior to contemporary exploitation</ul>
<ul> ❖ Drivers of environmental use and change across historical time frames</ul>
<ul>
❖ The significance of marine resources for human societies over time
</ul>
<ul>
❖ Factors that have encouraged societies to exploit or leave the oceans
</ul>
<ul>
❖ Development of indictors
</ul>
<ul>
❖ Implications of past and present human ocean activities for coastal and marine policy development
</ul></p>

<h2>Oceans Past Platform</h2>
<h3>Working Group Meetings</h3>
<p>OPI is connected with the COST Action Oceans Past Platform (2015-2018) that aims to determine the socio-economic, political, cultural and ecological implications of human impacts on marine life, and to develop historical descriptors and indicators for marine and coastal management. Meetings to discuss the current research on the five OPP Working Groups will be held in Sesimbra at May 19th 2017. https://www.tcd.ie/history/opp/ </p>
<p>The action calls on historians, archaeologists and social scientists as well as colleagues from the marine sciences to engage in dialogue and collaboration with ocean and coastal managers. Researchers gather within five thematic Working Groups , namely 1) Fish production, 2) Coastal settlements, 3) Aquaculture, 4) Changing values, and 5) Gendered seas.</p>

<h1>Oceans Past VII Conference</h1>
<h1><a href="assets/opvii_callforpapers.docx">**Call for Papers - Click Here**</a></h1>
<h3><i>Tracing human interactions with marine ecosystems through deep time: implications for policy and management</i></h3>
<h3> Alfred Wegener Institute Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research (AWI) & the German Maritime Museum, Bremerhaven, Germany: 22th to 26th October 2018</h3>

<p><b>Rationale:</b> Knowing the past is vital for developing a vision of the future. The oceans and inshore seascapes of the world are rapidly changing, and understanding the human and marine ecosystem forces, trajectories and responses – sometimes over centuries or millennia – is vital for their informed management. Understanding, quantifying, and predicting humanities interactions with the world’s coastal seas and oceans requires examination of our practices of consumption, transportation, extraction and pollution, as well as our values and governance systems. The conference aims to bring together the vast knowledge pool of two decades of marine historical ecology and environmental history to inform the policies of the Anthropocene.</p>
<p><b>Invitation:</b> The conference welcomes researchers, practitioners, policy-makers and students of all disciplines under the unifying view of our oceans as networks of social-ecological or coupled human-nature systems. If you have an interest in the history of human interactions with life in the ocean and implications for policy and management, this is the 2018 conference you must attend.</p>

<h2><a href="#">ICES WGHIST</a></h2>
<p>The Oceans Past Initiative is closely linked with the expert working group, WGHIST of the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES): <a href="http://www.ices.dk/community/groups/Pages/WGHIST.aspx">The ICES Working Group on the History of Fish and Fisheries (WGHIST)</a> brings together fisheries scientists, historians, and marine biologists working on multidecadal to centennial changes in the marine environment.</p>
<p>WGHIST aims to improve the understanding of the long-term dynamics of fish populations, fishing fleets, and catching technologies. The results are used for setting baselines for management, restoration, and conservation of marine resources and ecosystems.</p>

<div id="EU-COST">
<h2><a href="#">EU COST Action Network</a></h2>
<p><a href="http://www.tcd.ie/history/opp/index.php">The Oceans Past Platform (EU COST Action IS1403)</a> was launched earlier 2015: The Action calls on historians, archaeologists and social scientists as well as colleagues from the marine sciences to engage in dialogue and collaboration with ocean and coastal managers. OPP will develop historical descriptors and indicators for marine and coastal management.</p>
<img src="assets/img/opp.jpg" width="100%" alt="opp" />
<p><a href="http://oceanspast.org/OPI/OPPtest1.html">The Action, Oceans Past Platform (OPP)</a>, aims to measure and understand the significance and value to European societies of living marine resource extraction and production to help shape the future of coasts and oceans. The Integrative Platform will lower the barriers between human, social and natural sciences; multiply the learning capacity of research environments; and enable knowledge transfer and co-production among researchers and other societal actors, specifically by integrating historical findings of scale and intensity of resource use into management and policy frameworks.</p>
<p>The oceans offer rich resources for feeding a hungry world. However, the sea is an alien space in a sense that the land is not. Fishing requires skills that must be learnt, it presupposes culinary preferences, technical ability, knowledge of target species, and a backdrop of material and intangible culture. OPP asks when, how and with what socio-economic, political, cultural and ecological implications humans have impacted marine life, primarily in European seas in the last two millennia.</p>
