FSBI 2022 Annual Symposium
Fish in a Dynamic World
25th-29th July 2022
The symposium will explore the ways in which fish are able to occupy a broad range of naturally dynamic environments, as well as their capacity to adapt to habitat loss and directional environmental change.
We look forward to seeing you online or in-person this July at NTU!

Fish in a Dynamic World
Aquatic environments across the globe, and the fish that live in them, are subject to myriad threats, including the input of anthropogenic pollutants, over-exploitation, species introductions, physical barriers to movement, the manipulation of flow regimes and global climate change.
Fish respond to these perturbations at all organisational levels, with consequences for gene expression, physiology and patterns of behaviour. The impact of these changes on populations, communities and ecosystem processes is now beginning to be revealed.
The symposium, re-arranged from 2020, will explore the ways in which fish are able to occupy such a broad range of naturally dynamic environments, their capacity to adapt to habitat loss and directional environmental change, and the emerging ecosystem consequences.

The symposium will be based at NTU’s stunning rural Brackenhurst campus, close to the cathedral town of Southwell, with the Symposium banquet and medal awards ceremony to be held at the City campus in the centre of Nottingham. The newly completed Lyth Building will house all scientific sessions.
Our expectation is that this Symposium will be held as a face-to-face, in-person event, with an alternative online opportunity for delegates that are unable to attend in-person to participate in the meeting.
Symposium Programme (Updated 15th July)
The draft programme is shown below, this may still be subject to small changes.
We are planning to hold a workshop on Monday afternoon, on the topic of ‘Creating an inclusive, diverse and transparent fish and fisheries research community’. All delegates are invited to this workshop, which will include presentations, discussions, networking opportunities and the opportunity to contribute to an output. Other workshops including a scientific publication workshop will also be arranged, with details to follow.
