Dear Colleagues,

Welcome to the 21th International Symposium on Pollutant Responses in Marine Organisms (PRIMO21) in Gothenburg, Sweden.

Gothenburg is the largest non-capital in Scandinavia and is located on the Swedish West Coast. Gothenburg was founded in 1621 by King Gustav II Adolf at the outlet of the Göta Älv River. Gothenburg has gone from an industrial sea side town towards an innovative modern city. The heritage remains though and for example fishing is still today an important part of the city. Gothenburg is the world’s most sustainable destination, according to the Global Destination Sustainability Index 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019.

PRIMO aims to provide an interdisciplinary scientific forum for presenting and discussing research on the environmental effects of anthropogenic activities on the health of our oceans and other aquatic environments and the organisms within.
PRIMO21 aims to embrace global environmental challenges on toxic responses in aquatic and marine ecosystems. PRIMO21 will bring together world-leading scientists and the next generation environmental scientist to the City of Gothenburg. PRIMO21 is hosted by Department of Biological and Environmental Sciences at the University of Gothenburg.

I look forward meeting you in Gothenburg.

Malin Celander, Professor PhD, University of Gothenburg
PRIMO21 Chair
