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.

First FSBI hybrid conference for both in-person attendance at Nottingham Trent University and Online!

A broad range of excellent topics that cover all areas of our member's research

An inclusive and international symposium great for early career and senior researchers alike! 

We look forward to seeing you online or in-person next year!

Fish in a Dynamic World?

Fish show a remarkable capacity to adapt to all aquatic environments and show striking radiation in modes of feeding, life history, reproduction and behaviour.

The aquatic ecosystems that fish inhabit are also often subject to highly dynamic changes, over diurnal, tidal, and seasonal cycles, and fish exhibit remarkable plasticity to allow them to prosper in the face of such changes.

 

Why is this important to the symposium?

Aquatic environments across the globe, and the fish that live in them, are subject to myriad threats.

Fish are responding to these threats at all organisational levels, the consequences of these changes on populations, communities and ecosystem processes are now beginning to be revealed.

The research in and around these consequences is the core of the 2022 symposium.

Nottingham Trent University (Brackenhurst Campus)

July 25th -29th 2022 in-person venue will be hosted at the scenic Brackenhurst Campus at Nottingham Trent University (NTU)

NTU has recently won many plaudits for teaching and research and has been a top 10 in the People and the Planet League since 2009, making it a perfect venue for FSBI 2022.

The Locations

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.
