The ICES/CIESM Joint Workshop on Mnemiopsis Science (JWMS) chaired by Sophie Pitois (UK) and Tamara Shiganova (Russia), met in A Coruña, Spain from 18 to 20 September 2014. Scientists affiliated with the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES) and the Mediterranean Science Commission (CIESM) participated in the Joint Workshop to discuss the latest advances regarding the biogeography, ecology, impact and economic aspects of the invasive ctenophore Mnemiopsis leidyi and its Beroe predators (both native and invasive). The JWMS was attended by 20 scientists from 14 countries. The main objective of the workshop was to provide a forum for scientists to present and discuss the results of ongoing relevant research projects in the North Atlantic and Mediterranean. The 13 presentations stimulated wide ranging discussions relevant to Mnemiopsis science.
