    The Arctic Frontiers is an annual conference held in Tromsø, Norway, at the end of January. This year’s conference will focus on the theme “Power of knowledge” and takes place from 26-30 January 2020. The conference started out in 2006 assembling a global scientific summit on economic, societal and environmentally sustainable growth in the Arctic region. Arctic Frontiers has a pan-arctic perspective and builds new partnerships across nations, generations and ethnic groups. Participants from more than 35 countries joined the gathering in Tromsø in January 2019.
     
    Located in the hometown of the Arctic Council Secretariat, the Arctic Council has an active presence at the conference, including a side event on blue bioeconomy, a movie screening of THE GRIZZLIES, and a media tour. Here is a list of Arctic Council related events during Arctic Frontiers.

    A source for Arctic optimism: The Blue Bioeconomy

    Date and Time: Tuesday, 28 January 2020, 16:15-17:45
     
    The blue bioeconomy has the potential to be a major contributor to achieving sustainable development in the Arctic and beyond. The term “blue bioeconomy” refers to sustainably maximising the value and use of aquatic bioresources using innovative processing methods. It is a source for great optimism for the circumpolar region.
    Today, estimates reveal that up to 43% of captured fish and shellfish resources end up either as wastage or discarded material. This means that companies are throwing away 43% of the biomass that could potentially generate substantial profits by developing methods for turning “waste” into high value products for food, feed, bio-products and bioenergy sectors. The blue bioeconomy is a kind of back to basics thinking in the sense that it revolves around making the most of available resources, and maximizing the value of and revenue from marine catches while minimizing waste and negative environmental impacts of marine operations.
