Our logo: what does it mean?

Many find our logo weird and incomprehensible. These strange people in a boat is a quote of the White Sea petroglyphs can be found on the rocks in the vicinity of the town of Belomorsk. These are mostly scenes of hunting, drawn about 6 thousand years ago for luck. One image of hunters on a boat became a basis for our logo. Just as for our ancestors, our сatch – scientific results – greatly depends on a teamwork. We understand perfectly that we are all in the same boat. And the exaggerated size of stickleback reflect its importance in our studies and in the White Sea ecosystem.
