The First International Marine & Freshwater Sciences Symposium (MarFresh2018) which will be held on 18-21 October 2018 in Kemer/Antalya, Turkey.
Water is crucial for all living organisims that covers almost 80% of our planet. Although productivity of water resources unproportionally distributed, all of them host vast biodiversity but only very minor part in freshwaters is available for human life. Aquatic life in these ecosystems are progressively threatened by invasive species, climate change and habitat destructions mainly through anthropogenic pollution, water abstraction, unpredictable fluctuations in water level and invasive species. All these impacts interact and enhance uncertainty about the availability of aquatic life.
