World Fisheries Congress
September 20 - September 24
The World Fisheries Congress 2020 (WFC2020) aims to have a diverse, exciting and broad reaching conference to showcase the world’s commercial, recreational and indigenous fisheries. The Congress will advance and promote international developments, demonstrate new research and technologies, and foster cooperation and engagement in fisheries science and management. With increasing pressures from fishing and non-fishing activities, the Congress will provide an important forum for identifying the critical developments needed over the coming decades to ensure the world’s oceans, estuaries, lakes and rivers are used sustainably for the benefit of current and future generations.
WFC2020 will promote a dynamic and contemporary program that will test current thinking and practices on opportunities to enhance global fisheries, and the challenges of fishing sustainably and maintaining prosperous fishing communities.
