The Swedish Society for Marine Sciences (Svenska havsforskningsföreningen, SHF) is a nonprofit organization with a mission to promote cooperation between Swedish institutions and individuals who take a professional interest in the marine environment. As part of promoting the goals of our society, we are responsible for organizing the Marine Science Conference. This annual event is open to both researchers and private interest groups and serves as a great platform to present work and have discussions on current marine issues.
