The Canada-USSR Capelin Symposium on “The Biology of Capelin in the Northwest Atlantic” was held at the Battery Hotel in St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada, during 27–29 November 1990. The title of the Symposium was very broad and except for two overview papers, there was no attempt made by the convenors to solicit papers on specific topics. In total, 23 oral presentations were made (a list of contributions follows this report) and contributors were encouraged to submit manuscripts for publication in this Journal. The Symposium was attended by about 40 researchers from Canada and USSR.
