The symposium will encompass a broad range of scientific topics all of which fall under the umbrella of “The Sustainable Use and Exploitation of Fishes” and will feature a wide range of exciting scientific lectures, discussions, and numerous networking opportunities with both leading and up-and-coming researchers. We encourage participation of both freshwater and marine researchers, and those working across the full range of topics from sustainable fishing techniques, population genetics, population dynamics, conservation targets and indicators, fish welfare and stress, international trade, ecosystem effects, innovative aquaculture technologies, traceability and ornamental fisheries (both marine and freshwater).

The symposium will be divided into four broad sub-themes:

1. Commercial fish and fisheries

2. Recreational fish and fisheries

3. Ornamental and aquarium fish and fisheries

4. Fin-fish aquaculture

We will consider what ‘sustainable use and exploitation’ might mean for each of these types of system. We encourage contributions that examine basic fish biology, ecology, novel methods of data collection (including citizen science), experimental studies, modelling, genetics and genomics, and behavioural research.
