The 9th World Fisheries Congress (WFC) will be held in Seattle, Washington from
3 to 9 March 2024.
Organised through the World Council of Fisheries Societies, every four years delegates from around the world meet to exchange ideas and perspectives about new research, emerging issues, scientific breakthroughs, and governance related to fisheries science, industry, conservation, and management.
The next congress will explore the theme of Fish and Fisheries at the Food-Water-Energy Nexus. The WFC Planning Committee are preparing a program composed of:
- an opening plenary
- general sessions
- education workshops
- a planned symposia related to sustainability, fish and aquatic ecosystems, fisheries and society, and innovations in fisheries.
As host city, Seattle is an ideal location for an international fish and fisheries conference, with an international airport, a light rail system, and public transportation. Home to several academic, governmental and industry leaders in fish and fisheries sciences, Seattle has a vibrant downtown surrounded by verdant forests, snowcapped mountains, lakes and rivers, Puget Sound, and several National Parks.
