Australian Society for Fish Biology Conference 2017
‘Turning Points in Fish and Fisheries’
The conference will offer three days of high quality presentations, discussions and networking opportunities for students and scientists at different stages of their careers. With the overarching theme of ‘Turning Points in Fish and Fisheries’, we hope to get everyone thinking about all those influential moments or developments, small and big, that have changed the way we go about our research. The first day of the conference will showcase the many talented student members of ASFB through the popular Rapid Talks and will also include a ‘Nurturing Fish Scientists’ session where we encourage delegates to share experiences and perspectives that have helped shape their different career pathways. Make sure you check out the other special sessions (under the Program tab), which cover a wide range of hot topics including changes to marine habitats, drivers of migration, and new developments in the field of fisheries social science.
