Abstract : The program of the four-day symposium, 'Cultivation of Marine Organisms and Its Importance for Marine Biology,' held at the Biological Institute, Helgoland, West Germany, Sept. 9-12, 1969, is reported. Some 250 scientists attended to hear 75 papers which covered both basic and applied aspects of cultivating fish, crustaceans, molluscs, lower invertebrates, plants and a variety of microorganisms. Two informal sessions, Fish Farming and Cultivation of Phytoplankton Populations, were also held to discuss the present state of knowledge and to define areas requiring further study both for scientific purposes and to allow commercial development of marine organisms.
