This workshop is organised by The Institute of Fisheries Management (IFM) and will feature international fish taxonomic leads for the identification of fish species encountered within the estuarine and coastal waters of the UK.

It will provide the opportunity for hands-on fish identification and fish monitoring, with delegates supported through a range of skills gained in decades of field monitoring experience. The course will be run as either a complete estuarine & marine fish package, or delegates can choose to attend the fish ID element only

The ID part of the course will be run from March 24th – 26th. The monitoring element takes place on the 27th and 28th. 

The course is fully accredited by the Institute of Fisheries Management and participants will be assessed on both their taxonomic and field skills, with successful delegates being awarded the IFM Certificate for Estuarine & Marine Fish Taxonomy or Estuarine and Marine Fish Monitoring.
