MarES is an interdisciplinary research project. Researchers from UiT, Akvaplan Niva, University in Stavanger, NMBU, Menon Economics and Universidade NOVA de Lisboa aim to find new and better instruments for marine resource management.
MarES recognizes that global changes in climate and human activities may affect utilization of marine ecosystem services (ES) in the northernmost part of Norway. It is especially relevant in areas with conflicts of interest between user groups and policy makers.
