This will be the second workshop dedicated to fish tagging and telemetry that the IFM has held. The first event was at the Royal Armouries, Leeds in summer 2014. This time we have travelled a bit further north to Scotland and will be in the grand surroundings of the St Leonards Hall, at the University of Edinburgh, on June 7th and 8th. We have put together a diverse programme featuring speakers from across the UK and Europe, who will be covering a range of projects in both the freshwater and marine fields. Species highlighted range from lamprey to sea bream and salmon to sharks.
