Syngnathid Biology International Symposium

The 2nd Syngnathid Biology International Symposium (Syng Bio 2013) was held from
25 to 28 March at the University of the Algarve, Faro, Portugal. The Fisheries Biology and Hydrobiology Research Group of the Centre of Marine Sciences had the privilege to host Syng Bio 2013 and was proud to have it in Portugal.

The Symposium theme was “Multidisciplinary Approaches to Syngnathid Biology” and aimed to embrace several aspects of seahorse, pipefish and seadragon biology. There were oral and poster presentations across a broad range of topics, including: physiology, phylogenetics, phylogeography, genomics, sexual selection and mating systems, behaviour, syngnathid breeding programs and aquaculture, and conservation and management.
