The "Annual Seminar on Marine Science and Aquaculture" commenced in 2003 in Universiti Malaysia Sabah. It provided a platform to exchange knowledge about the marine ecosystem and development of aquatic food resources through sustainable fisheries and aquaculture. From 2014, this annual event was rebranded and is now known as the “International Conference on Marine Science and Aquaculture (ICOMSA)” The theme for ICOMSA 2017 is "New Frontier in Sustainable Marine Bioresources". This topic is of global relevance and is particularly important for a country such as Malaysia where marine ecosystem services play a significant role in socio-economic development, aquaculture industry is growing at a fast rate and seafood consumption is high. The conference program will be structured to include papers dealing with overcoming the challenges through innovative solutions. Our goal is to demonstrate how science and new ideas can provide the best possible solutions to our ever-changing marine environment, and addressing existing and evolving challenges which are critical for ocean ecosystem balance and sustainability of benefits we derive from ocean-based economies such as fisheries, aquaculture, and ecotourism.
