About IFM

Created in 1969 in the UK, the IFM is dedicated to the advancement of sustainable fisheries management. We are a non-profit organisation controlled by members and managed by an elected council.

Our members are fisheries managers from regulatory and research bodies, fishing and angling organisations, water companies, fish farms and educational institutions. We are represented at many levels within government and conservation bodies. We have branches in the UK and our own training/education system. We organise many events through the year, from national conferences to small branch visits.
