Why Host a FSBI Symposium?
The Fisheries Society of the British Isles has held an annual symposium since 1977 and they have become an integral part of the Society’s activities. It is always the highlight of our year and the key to many of our society's successes.
Proposals should be made not less than two and no more than four years in advance of the intended date of the meeting.
Any proposal will be evaluated by FSBI Council, which meets in April (for proposals submitted by March 31st) and December (for proposals submitted by November 30th) every year, though consideration is welcome at any time of the year.

What Our Members think of Our Symposiums
"The symposium has already helped me expand my knowledge, networking, and scientific vision.
All of the lectures and posters during the symposium were of significantly high quality and really helped facilitate my understanding of many new concepts that I have not come across within my research focus."
Aquatic wildlife conservation researcher
"If I did not join the FSBI or apply for the 2019 conference, I would not have found my perfect PhD project.
The conference was fantastically orchestrated, the talks were incredibly delivered, and the social events provided the chance to meet wonderful scientists, in which their work I have been reading and admiring throughout my studies."
