As the Institute celebrates its 50th anniversary, the Ireland Branch will mark the milestone with a one-day Conference. Shortly after the formation of the IFM in 1969, fisheries staff from across Ireland became members and have been actively promoting its aims ever since. 

The theme for the recent 50th Annual IFM Conference in Nottingham was Learning from the Past to Inform the Future. The Ireland branch has decided to adopt the same theme and has assembled an excellent programme of presentations which will cover many of the leading issues affecting inland fisheries on the Island of Ireland.

Conference sessions will cover a wide range of topics including;

  • Technology – Tracking and e-DNA
  • Stock management
  • Conservation Regulation  and Fisheries Policy 
  • Stakeholder engagement 
  • Historical Perspectives 
  • Fisheries Habitat Enhancement 
  • Fish and Fisheries Challenges

The Conference is free to IFM members.

An attendance Fee of €15 will apply for non-members. A light lunch will be provided.
