Institute of Fisheries Management
The IFM is an international organisation, dedicated to the advancement of sustainable fisheries management. Membership is open to anyone with an interest in fish and fisheries, their proper management and conservation.
Created in 1969 to represent fisheries professionals across all sectors, we have 10 regional branches in the UK and Ireland. We are one of the largest providers of specialist fisheries training in the UK and have developed our own training system. We organise many events through the year, from major international symposia to small branch visits and talks. IFM members are able to apply to achieve the Chartered Environmentalist qualification via the Society for the Environment.
