‘Learning from the past to inform the future’ 
October 8th – 10th  
Nottingham Conference Centre, Nottingham, UK. 
 Come and join the Celebrations 
This year we celebrate fifty years of the Institute of Fisheries Management. This landmark annual conference will focus on a review of past success, the current state of fisheries and fish populations and a forward look at challenges and opportunities facing the industry from environmental and socio-economic change to technological development. 
At this historic milestone the Institute felt the time was right to dedicate its annual conference to a past, present and future assessment of fisheries management.  
The conference will bring together speakers and delegates from across the UK and Ireland, Europe and Worldwide for three days of talks, posters and networking.
