Kia ora Welcome! 

On behalf of the organising committee, we warmly invite you to join us for the first ever Crustacean Society meeting in New Zealand.

In May 2023 the ICC10, the 10th International Crustacean Congress, will bring together carcinologists at the National Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa in Wellington.

Crustaceans are ubiquitous in all of the world’s aquatic environments and are at the forefront of international studies of neurobiology, aquaculture, toxicology, biosecurity, biodiversity and evolution, to name just a few.

The ICC 10 meeting is co-hosted by The Crustacean Society and the International Society of Invertebrate Reproduction and Development (ISIRD). The programme is dedicated to dissemination of all aspects of crustacean biology and to promote the exchange of information and ideas among persons interested in carcinology.

See you in Wellington, New Zealand!
