SALEKHARD, West Siberia, September 25 (Itar-Tass) - President Olafur Ragnar Grimsson of Iceland has stressed the importance of research into the processes unfolding in the Arctic area that bring about considerable changes in regional ecological systems.
When the sides interested in discussing the issues are trying to figure out the possible consequences of thinning Arctic ice cover and shrinking glaciers for the populations of fish and marine plans, they should open up new opportunities for a lasting and durable collaboration in science, Grimsson said at the Arctic: A Territory of Dialogue international Arctic forum held here by the Russian Geographic Society.
As an instance of this, he pointed out the data testifying to changes in the catch of Atlantic mackerel and said is should show how the warming of the Atlantic and Arctic Oceans may change the migration models as a result of which new species of fish will appear in the waters of the regional countries, while the traditional species will shift their habitats to other places in a search for lower temperatures.
That is why science and research should become guidelines for everyone.
Also, he called attention to the huge reserves of the so-called pure energy resources in the Arctic, including the geothermal ones.
