Marine Science Symposia have always been crucial to ICES work in terms of expanding and diversifying the scope of scientists involved in the organization's activities. Now, records of proceedings of such symposia as well as other key meetings, stretching back to just a year later than the establishment of ICES itself in 1902, are available in the ICES publications library.
In 1995, the MSS series was integrated into the ICES Journal of Marine Science (IJMS). Since then, publishers Oxford University Press have usually issued three volumes of proceedings annually.
