HELCOM-OSPAR-ICES Joint Working Group on seabirds

The HELCOM-OSPAR-ICES Joint Working Group on seabirds is a platform for experts from the Baltic Sea and North East Atlantic regions to work on seabird issues.

The group meets annually and works intersessionally through​ correspondence. The topics the group works on during the annual meetings are agreed jointly by HELCOM, OSPAR and ICES. To support the needs of the three organizations the experts work to provide information needed for management and also more scientific issues.

National experts are nominated by the HELCOM countries to participate in the work of the group.
